This poem is based on the Indian festival "Diwali"

The poem brings out a symbolic meaning of the Diwali



Diwali is a festival of lights,

It brightens up the dark cloudy nights,

Diwali comes towards the end of the year,

Bringing sparks of joy & cheer,

It is celebrated with sweets, firecrackers, & get together,

Diwali makes people do rangoli design colour together,


Prayers are offered to gods above,

To shower prosperity for future to come,

To increase the wealth, health & happiness sum,

All this can happen, when we deep root ourselves,

To what is the meaning of Festival Of Light that dwells'

On earth for so many years that is going on,

Light up the smiles of everyone around you,

Give happiness to all not just a few...


This is what the Lord wants to say,

Diwali is not time bound, it is each & every day...

Every moment when it becomes a celebration,

Is a life well lived,

Every moment joyous, is lighting up inner peace!!!

Diwali is actually lighting hearts with joy, success & fun

 Springing the value of life, which vibrantly needs to be won..................
