Diwali


Friends, lights, Glitter
Excited chitter chatter
Street kids' banter.
Starlit sky, bulb lit streets
Happy faces and mouthful of sweets.
And then comes, the crackers...
Hiss, burst, explode, shimmer
creating hues, spectacular
Days of anticipation,
so much preparation,
and in a moment - up in flames!
Joy supramundane.
