Festival of lights...


With a flurry of lights,
Leaving a trail of smoke behind,
A loud sound is heard beyond a mile.
They celebrate the festival of lights,
Content and with a smile.
Going out and about town
Adorning new clothes,
In various hues and style,
They celebrate the festival of lights,
Content and with a smile.
I look at them wistfully,
And then look at my house,
The goddess of wealth hasn't yet,
Blessed it with her presence,
New clothes, crackers and the works,
Are difficult for a daily wage earner to afford,
As I see the silent yearning in the eyes of my kin,
I know it will be a while,
Before we celebrate the festival of lights,
Content and with a smile!



Even the smallest gesture from your end will go a long way in brightening up someone's Diwali. 

This year, spare some thought and try turning Diwali into a festival of smiles. 

Hope you have a noise free and safe Diwali!
