“The Festival of Holi”


Hi friends, while I am busy with my exams but even then I wrote a poem on the festival of Holi.
Now its your time to read.

When colours of life

from big water guns

splash and spread

make earth heaven,

Colour balloons in hands

and water in big drums

turns the weather

and brings rainy season,

Old fights and quarrels

are forgotten at this festival of holi

makes everyone’s heart pure

and brings the feeling holy.

About the Poem-
This poem is aimed at describing the whole environment during holi.

    “Old fights and quarrels are forgotten” … It’s always interesting to see how events, celebrations, and experiences can make people put aside their differences and just have fun together.

    I love this: “When colours of life from big water guns” … It makes me want to put food coloring in our squirt guns.🙂 I love the thought of God painting the earth with water guns and rainbows. Beautiful descriptions.

    Hello: thank you for taking the time to read and comment on one of my pieces at the Nice Cage Blog (especially since you have exams approaching). I very much like the joyful tone you have employed here. The playfulness, the colors, and the water are held in a blissful near sacred manner. Well done and viva la
