Happy Deepawali

Happy Deepawali Poem
Happy Deepawali

This Deepawali I decided to walk around, 
Gather thoughts and register some memories
Be a part of the whole yet be with self,
Celebrating it in a unique style.

Across the road was a colony,
Soaked in milky white
Diyas , lights and crackers,
Combination illuminating the sky.

I entered through one of the streets,
Bustling with activity likewise
Shops loaded with sweets and gifts,
Spirited hearts busy buying.

I passed through few houses,
Decorated with flowers and ribbons
Rangoli at the door steps,
Entire household coming alive.

I turned back with a happy heart,
The view was a feast to the eyes
Seeing others in the festive mood,
I was vicariously enjoying.

Along the bend of the road,
Few lesser mortals lived by
Their kids from a distance,
Watched with silent eyes.

Now I too had to shop,
Sweets and crackers
And reached back,
Where those kids stood by.

Gifting them was so satisfying,
A new meaning I did find
The smile on their faces,
My festival had turned divine.

May this festival bring to all unbound joys , happiness and prosperity . 

Happy Deepawali !!
