Festival of Colours in Its True Spirit..

by Ramesh Sood

I picked some sunshine
Plucked a little of Moonbeam
I added a few drops
Of shining morning dew
And a beautiful colour
Grew on my palm
Which I sprinkled oncolors-holi
Her smiling face
And lo! I often find her face
Glowing like Moon
On some occasions
Sun reflects itselfimages-1
and then there are moments
When it’s as pious and calm
Like early morning mood
All because just once
I chose to enjoy
The festival of colours
In it’s true spirit..
And now on each Holi
We celebrate there
In those lovely moments..

Holi got its name as the “Festival of Colors” from Lord Krishna who liked to play pranks on the village girls by drenching them in water and colors.

The festival marks the end of winter and the abundance of the upcoming spring harvest season.

A VERY HAPPY HOLI… 
FESTIVAL OF COLOURS TO EVERYONE!!!!
