    Down come on the earth the amazing skies,
    And beauty is scattered, all round it flies,
    Hates are put when aside and love rules all,
    May be olds or youths, whether great or small! .....................beautiful poem enjoyed reading

    Wishing you a happy Diwali with prosperity and joy. Thank you for the poem, reminding the festivity what cleanses the mind from all dirt and pains. The fire works and lights rejoice the mind. It symbolizes lightening the mind removing to remove all darkness. (Report)Reply

    Beautiful poem on festival of lights. Beautiful lines...

    At least we forget our pains in such night,
    Festivals are a source of heavenly light,
    If meant for light it's brighter than bright,
    We see someone who is out of the sight.

    May we all be blessed with divinely lights..... Loved the way you presented it.
