Diwali - Festival Of Lights - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Little lamp
An earthen bowl
Filled with oil
Soaked cotton wick
Lighted at end
Diwa is flame
A huge collection
Is Diwali
Another way to
Say Deepavali.

Lamps, lamps
Lamps in lines
Lamps in circles
Lamps on walls
Lamps at all corners
Lamps everywhere
Driving away
The darkness
Of ignorance
Joy filling air.

Creators of evil
Left the earth
Celebration
Of freedom
Is at its height
Fireworks are lit
Sparkles fly
Brightening the sky
Delight of people
Is on display.

Gather the children
Invite friends
Involve all
Kith and kin
Help the needy
Their faces lit
And hope rising
Celebrate
Celebrate heartily
The spirit of Diwali.
