 Seven horses of sun

Suraj ka saatvaan ghoda.. Still remember this title from an obscure movie I had watched on Doordarshan as a kid. The movie went on to become a classic by Shyam Benegal and the phrase has always stayed in some corner of my mind.. 1,996 more words

Remembrance of Holi

Remembrance of Holi
by Michael Romani

In a festival of colors
It's a festival of love
In a swirling of dancers
It's all of the above

Frolicking in joyous celebration
As new growth is awaited
This is what is celebrated
In a burning of bonfires for initiation

Crowds throng the street
As good triumphs over evil
A ritual of belief since times primordial
May the arrows of Shiva be true and fleet

The heartbeat of Holi
Is swarmed by crowds around the shrine
Dancing in a jovial pantomime
All a part of the raucous festivity

Colored in abundance
As a nationwide birthday party
Suitable for a godly romance
As new forgiveness is offered heartily

There are no strangers here
Just one blended family
Joined in one smile to revere
Expressed as love lived so sincere
