slow motion 3

one of these days, i walked down a street,
suddenly transformed into a golden glowing
beautiful other world by the sun setting perpendicular
a great orange sphere splashing gold through the trees

and these days, on a perpendicular street
the balloons rain down as i walk past
five in fifty meters bursting all around
until the kids run out in my refugee lane

the festival of colours is upon us
and i see those balloons in slow motion
spinning through the near leafless trees
translucent, filled with light till
they sink into the ground and
burst into spreading darkness

sunsets are beautiful because they are analogous to balloons.

especially if they catch you by surprise

...happy holi
