Festival of Lights are gone
by Geetha Jayakumar
All the lamps cleaned and kept aside
Waiting for its next arrival.
Often Diwali falls on no moon day.
A rest day for the moon.
Diwali visit us on darkness of night.
Asking the people to lit the lamp of brightness
Not only on house, streets but also
In their hearts too.
Guests are gone.
Sweetness of sweets too went along with them.
I am left all alone watching the empty house and the tiny birds.
No crackers will be heard.
No children playing mess around here and there.
I feel the silence and only silence everywhere.
Many festivals came and went in sequence bidding bye.
Ganesh Chathurthi followed by Dussehra and Diwali.
Festival did lit my heart with light
Which I am going to keep it burning bright
Till next Diwali!
Yes, Christmas and New Year are on its way!
Let me turn page and write something for my New Year resolutions!
