Holi Hai

I am dreaming of playing with colours and Gulaal,
For, it is the Holi celebration after all.

I can't play inside my house, the carpets will get fainted,
I can't play it in the yard, the outer walls will get painted.

I thought I would go to the temple and enjoy the Holi festival,
But alas! I am banned from playing with colours inside the temple,

I can't play the drums and sing "Holi Hai", with pride
For, the neighbours don't like the noise outside.

Disappointed, at the community center I join the gathering.
Where the Holi celebrations are held in the evening.

The kids perform and remind me of my cultural heritage,
I hear the Holi songs and watch dances, on the stage.

I also enjoy special Holi treat, with grace,
But I still miss the colours and Gulaal on my face.
