the festive spirit


it appeared to all as if rainbow had descended

colours looked so exquisite, beautiful and blended

people all around holding sweets and colours

playing out with joy with some running for covers

and as the colourful festive spirit rose to its peak

atmosphere turned vibrant, magical  and mystique

the weather too was lovely, naughty and freaky

and the people were joyous, saucy and cheeky

but when the colours touched face of a gentleman

the regular act of Murmuration then slowly began

and then a colour balloon painted the man red

the clothes turned colourful but anger on the head

then multicoloured water drenched a person whole

the murmur rose louder and burst out of control

the festival took backseat, the anger on the front

and humans fought like kids, culture bore the brunt

  1. One of my Hindu friends invited me to the Holi celebration at her residence in Karachi, Pakistan. It was such a joyful event. I am glad that I got the chance to view it. Everyone put their worries aside and smiled and laughed the whole time. 🙂
