Silly Season - Poem by UNNIKRISHNAN E S
The darkest spell
Of the cold witch is over.
Nature plays Holi; gulal spreads.
Heaves a sigh hot.
Last of the spring flowers
Have dried and withered long back
All through the day.
Warns the lingering breeze,
"Gear up, the worst is yet coming"
Gloomy gray skies
Blandest of all seasons
Harbinger of all maladies
