Happy Diwali


The house is clean and sparkling
The lamps are ready to be lit and company charming
The doorway is adorned with beautiful patterns
The house is all lit up with flickering lanterns

Wake up early to throng the temples
Give thanks to the Lord with plates of offerings
It’s time to visit family and friends
Time to treat them to yummy goodies and presents

It’s time to break out the new clothes
Pretty as a picture, you preen and pose
The dazzling array of colours all around you
Portends happiness anew

But in all these moments of happiness and joy
Give a thought to those who are in sadness and misery
Make time for them, give them a reason to smile
Because that’s what makes life good and worthwhile

Diwali is the festival of light and happiness
That’s what makes it so auspicious
Celebrating with friends, relatives and family
Here’s wishing you all a very HAPPY DIWALI!
