Holi

White sari, you are a masterpiece
Splash, dyed with colors
Aunties red handprints
Uncle’s greens
Mixture of joyous newcomer’s pink
Yellow for aspiring friendships
Blue for the past lovers you saw on your way
Soft tidings orange for strangers’ touch
Kids gun you with purple
New beginnings,
Bursting laughter,
Harmonious music
Mighty & strong, the
Air thick with powder & finally
Spring has come.
