Rookie - 37 Points (30th January / India)

Deepavali - Festival Of Lights


Dispelling of all rancor
and settling past debts

Air rife with festivity
with few indulgent bets


Goes to offers new start
with purging of the old

Harking to the folklore
repeatedly being retold

Dusk brings in excitement
with myriad colorful lights

Sky is set ablaze with
with multi-hued delights

Bejeweled seems setting
akin to newlywed bride

Confirms sense of cohesion
most animosities get belied


Known as pure manifestation
for the righteous to prevail

In warding off all depraved
and their wickedness unveil

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
