Untranslatable words writing exercise

I was just perusing this post, “30 Untranslatable Words From Other Languages,” illustrated by Anjana Iyer, and thought it would be a lovely idea to pick one and write about it as an exercise. It could be a free-write, an intense sensory exploration, character portrait, a scene or poem that recreates or encapsulates the experience or feeling of the word… whatever. Iyer’s illustrations are so beautiful and moody that it would be fun to incorporate them too.
