meet me in the heart of the kasbah
by the spice-seller stalls and perfumeries
meet me 'neath the shade of a broken arch
there's poetry in the ruins of this city

Day #5
"I will die, in autumn, in Kashmir,
and the shadowed routine of each vein
will almost be news, the blood censored
for the Saffron Sun and the Times of Rain"


— Agha Shahid Ali

Reading your poems is like stepping into a still dimension where everything is in its truest form <3
If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.

I'm really loving reading your poetry, Arc! I like the cultural aspects you weaved in with the first several and then the sappiness of the past few has just made my heart happy to read. Kudos to you for keeping on track with a poem a day!

"For a short space of time I remained at the window watching the pallid lightnings that played above Mont Blanc and listening to the rushing of the Arve, which pursued its noise way beneath. The same lulling sounds acted as a lullaby to my too keen sensations; when I placed my head upon my pillow, sleep crept over me; I felt it as it came and blessed the giver of oblivion."
— Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
