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.
