Tell all the truth but tell it slant —
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth’s superb surprise
As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind —

— Emily Dickinson (1868)

“a naturalist is more a poet than an engineer”

— Ramon Margalef

In the season of the Gulmohars
We went out for a walk
Hand in hand together
in silence, no talk.

I was sitting there
with a cup of tea,
some strong black tea,
with a dash of lime
at the Schorlemmer Cafe
