There was something about the moon yesterday - she was a Holi moon. Saw her at about 8pm and she looked like she had been splashed in colors. She was a red-gold moon. (Wonder which of her friends she had been playing colors with - stars, fairies, elves and all?)
When I saw her about an hour later, she had returned to her pearly splendour - all dressed in silvers, after having had her bath. It was the moon's way of wishing us a Happy Holi, I felt.
Then on second thoughts, could she, like our earth have been in a blood bath, and then she, like us, the resilient members of the human race had washed off the blood and returned to her usual shining self?
