Diwali

  And God said
“Let there be light”
And there was light
To conquer the darkness
So too at Diwali
The little oil lamps
Adorning every home
Help to keep out the
Dark and evil spirits.

The fireworks light
Up the night skies
A feeling of love
And Camaraderie
Descends on one and all
The “let's celebrate “
Contagion effect is felt
Across the country.

Greetings are exchanged
And sweets distributed
Generously to everyone
Both the rich and the poor
Experience the joy
That comes out of
Giving and sharing
Even in recession times.
