Fest of Colours

Under an umbrella,
Sits a quiet boy,
At the edge of the
Busy road,
Selling multi-colours,
Of Holi,
On a hot
March afternoon,
Unable to use the
Tempting colours,
For himself/friends,
The child waits eagerly,
For indifferent clients;

If this big-eyed boy,
In a torn shirt,
Is unable to sell
The assorted colours,
And bring some cash for the
Starving family,
He will
Not be able to
Play this Holi.
