Diwali - A Haiku - Poem by Sunil Uniyal

diwali night ~
a row of lamps wavering
in haze and smog

(Note: Diwali or Deepawali is the Hindu Festival of Lights, when they light their homes with candles and earthen lamps to welcome Sri-Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity. It is a joyous occasion celebrated by children with bursting of crackers and people exchange greetings with sweets.)
