Happy Holi! - Poem by Aparna Chatterjee

On Dol Poornima
When the dark night
Dispels itself
Into the silvery light
of the Full Moon's
Luminescence

In those beams of
Its translucent
Whites
You'll see how the
Moon delights :)
In playing this Festival
of Colours
With the night's
Greys and blacks
of shadowy sights!

And then you'll realise
That the eternal moon
Has always loved its
Companion - The Night.

For them, every moonlit
Night is a game of love
Playing....Happy Holi!


(Dol means Holi in Bengali. Poornima means Full Moon. Dol Poornima implies the Full Moon Holi Night.)
