Light Up!


The air is shimmering with energy,

Thick with aromas and perfumes,

Resounding of laughs and tinkling bells.

Infectious humor multiplying.


Days glow with colors and glitter,

Yummy food and impulsive hugs.

Dressing up and twirling with joy

As families and friends unite.


Nights fall into a dream lapse,

With diyas, lanterns and pearls of light.

Sparklers radiate wishes into inky skies,

Resolutions and promises reconnect.


Winning over the darkness of hearts,

Evoking sudden smiles amidst tears,

Celebrating the liberation of souls,

A festival of and for every light!

The quickest possible scribble… Wishing everyone a Happy and a prosperous Diwali. And Happy Halloween – time for double celebrations!  🙂
