    Dear Mirakeeans!

    Let us all rejoice and celebrate the festival of colours and bring in the sense of togetherness and connectivity. Happy Holi to you all!

    'The lovely fragrance of flowers 
    Pervades the whole atmosphere 
    Ceramic pots of little violets hang 
    Against the indigo coloured screens 
    Adorning the living room while 
    The blue bells thrive in the garden beds 
    Alongside pleasing green ferns 
    The yellow buttercups do attract attention 
    As do the orange marigolds in full bloom 
    But in this colourful garden 
    The deep red rose still retains 
    Pride of place'
    - Sandra Martyres

    'I dive down into the depth of the ocean of forms,
    hoping to gain the perfect pearl of the formless.

    No more sailing from harbor to harbor with this my weather-beaten boat.
    The days are long passed when my sport was to be tossed on waves.

    And now I am eager to die into the deathless.

    Into the audience hall by the fathomless abyss
    where swells up the music of toneless strings
    I shall take this harp of my life.

    I shall tune it to the notes of forever,
    and when it has sobbed out its last utterance,
    lay down my silent harp at the feet of the silent.'
    - Rabindranath Tagore

    'Mirror

    The girl out of the mirror 
    Looks sad and pale 
    that’s how she'll die 
    Alone and frail 
    The girl in the mirror 
    smiling is she 
    She looks happy and joyful 
    Why shouldn’t she be 
    The girl out of the mirror 
    Unhappy in life 
    Is upset with herself 
    Keeps watching her knife 
    The girl in the mirror is 
    Smiling 
    Joking 
    Buying 
    The girl out of the mirror is 
    Sighing 
    Weeping 
    Dying'
    - Naomi Burdett

    'In the dark of night, moon hidden from sight
    Large snowflakes in flight and transcending white
    Come morning's twilight, ice crystals ignite
    They sparkle so bright as sun rays excite
    The song birds unite, and softly invite
    On the heart it writes , a poet's delight'
    -Daniel Turner
