Treasure Island

Colors


Come on! forget
days went by and
look a pied dawn
dances its way
to your door.

Shed off hues
you inherited
through caste
creed
faith
sect
region
tene t
and all
Douse yourself with
colors of brotherhood
and play holi of love
this is a golden moment
to beautify the ugly face
of your yearlong hatred
this is the only chance
to bridge giddy gorges
of your strained relations

Don't sit in home puffed
Look that flame of forest,
stripping itself of old rags
it wore attires of saffron florets

Cheer up, My friend!
and enjoy this rare occasion
drunken with infinite delight
you will suffer an irreparable loss
if you remain in you secured cell
Why do you wrap yourselves in pallid mood?
While the whole of universe is colorful mood.

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
