HAPPY DIWALI


HAPPY DIWALI
(A FESTIVAL OF LIGHT TO DAY IN INDIA)

The earth turns into a sky of night
Million lamps like stars twinkle bright,
Homes are brides in splashes of smile
Flowers are garments strewn on neck
Plenty of sweets after the sunset,
Children lit up crackers in mighty hearts
A rocket springs from ground to sky,
They roar and sing on their tender lips
Hidden somewhere for this golden eve,
The banana trees on every doorsteps
Girls with flowers ready to greet
Pulsing hearts of love for every guests,
Though clouds of smoke alarm a fear
Million industries worry us sinking life,
Though in a day we spend our money
We share warmth never imagined,
Goddess of wealth blinks from heaven
Glides down to earth with divine bliss,
Light is life brighten our cloudy souls
Keeps us away from the dark ways.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
