The Colour Of Water


Gray
A dip in the
holy Ganges
washes away
your sins
they say
leaving you
pure

What colour
are your
transgressions
the waves
swept away

Do the waters turn
red
with your rage
yellow
with your cowardice
green
with your envy
black
with your oppression
gray
with your fear

The flowing river
absorbs all the ills
but is not
stained by them
The waters run
transparent
the colour
of truth
and honesty
