Diwali Delight

a poem by

Inchara

The festival of lights is here again
To cheer up hearts and brighten mind
Decorative lamps eliminates pain
And spreads happiness to mankind

Various hues combine in poise
To form beautiful Rangolis inline,
Likewise people gather with no noise
And celebrate joyously recalling divine

Sparklers touch the sky saluting the maker
Sweet savories prevail fights bitter
Jingle of laughter match thunder of cracker
Designer silks make the ambiance glitter

Humble offerings are made to needy community
Pray the almighty lighten their opportunity
