Burst of Colours
by Amrita Mallik  1st April  2024

3D Shape

The sentient colours of sprightly spring return,

As the gelid white winters finally bid goodbye,

The cool breeze still retaining a wintry touch,

But the warmth of the sun thaws and ushers in a new time,

Bright shades of green under the clear blue sky,

The buzzing bees hoveting over the vibrant flowers,

The splashing of colours on each other,

As people gear up for celebrating the Festival of Colours,

There's hope still.. Conveys the loveable season,

The sinister acts cannot succeed,

The burst of optimistic hues nurture humanity,

And that is the reason why a frustrated soul like me,

Still don't quit.. Still don't completely shut her senses.

first day of spring -
white and red woven string
at my newborn's hand

limes avenue in bloom…
promenade hand in hand
in a yellow Milky Way

pink peonies in bloom…
two butterflies are sharing
the path to the garden

Flower Outline

Brilliant yellow


splashes 'round our pantlegs


We run through the field laughing


An acre of lemon yellow sunshine


is sprouting from the cold Spring earth



You were supposed to be at school


mother scolds



We were, we say


but the daffodils waved to us



And this was not a lie



These joyful yellow bobbing heads


the first bright lights of Spring


called to us so loudly and so merrily


we coudn't help but join them

Spring at the Gate

By Santosh Bakaya 5th March 2024


The green tendril hums a lilting song.

The woman smiles.

There is spring in the air. 

Spring at the gate 

Spring in her gait.


Svelte silhouettes still

sing in gilded cages.

But they sing of hope. 

And -

Hope is a stooped silhouette singing unstopping.

Songs of rejuvenation. 


Songs of revival.


Songs of resurrection.














Devoid of all dramatic hues, 

not worthy of any breaking news, 

strum in the air.

The woman looks wistfully 

at the sprawling impermanence of the vibrant, colourful wonderland.


And smiles.


In her  pocket- sized garden, 

another  woman bends down to look at a cheeky, yellow-green weed, frowning 

that it has incautiously reared its head in the bed of fresh, red roses. 

With work - weary fingers brown,

 she pulls out the weed.


She smiles 

in a  serene and steadfast manner.

The colours of spring surge and converge with the soft, colorful textures of her personality.

Nature breaks into a euphonious ditty, the notes exemplifying colours all- 

red, green, black, yellow, purple,  beige and white. 

The powerful resilience and tenderness of nature resonating bright.

I hear the colours pulsating and throbbing, mobbing my heart and mind. 


Ah, I am swamped by Spring' s sparkling  splendour!
