28| New Delhi, India| Of good things, pretty places and happy faces! And random bouts of existentialism. Mostly the former. I think. I am?

"Every one of the hundred thousand cities around the world had its own special sunset and it was worth going there, just once, if only to see the sun go down." - Ryū Murakami

“O Solitude! if I must with thee dwell,
Let it not be among the jumbled heap
Of murky buildings; climb with me the steep, —
Nature's observatory—whence the dell,
Its flowery slopes, its river's crystal swell,
May seem a span; let me thy vigils keep
'Mongst boughs pavillion'd, where the deer's swift leap
Startles the wild bee from the fox-glove bell.
But though I'll gladly trace these scenes with thee,
Yet the sweet converse of an innocent mind,
Whose words are images of thoughts refin'd,
Is my soul's pleasure; and it sure must be
Almost the highest bliss of human-kind,
When to thy haunts two kindred spirits flee”
-John Keats

Like black ice
Scrolled over with unintelligible patterns
by an ignorant skater
Is the dulled surface of my heart.

Cosmogyral: whirling around the universe

Ichi-go ichi-e (Japanese): one time, one meeting; an encounter that only happens once in a lifetime, reminding one to treasure every moment for it will never recur.
