Blossoming flowers and fresh greens
Welcome Spring – the season of joy
Shedding all inhibitions
People step out into the open

Water pistols in hand
Colour packets in pockets
Holi unfolds in the streets
A riot of colours

A time to bond
To smile, to hug
Colour each other
Like kids in gay abandon

The crowds break into dance
Holi Hai, Holi Hai
Vibrant joy and emotion
Wipe off tears and distress

Painted in colours of love
All look the same
An atmosphere of frolic
And a feeling of oneness

    Hello. It’s a shame the smiles & feeling of oneness are only for one day.
    Thanks for sharing.
