Diwali 2012

In a moment
to ignite a flame...

The smell of freshness,
and the crisp new dress
that comfortably envelopes your body.
As the soft dawn creeps upon the night,
The glimmer of the lamp reflects in its own oil-
Facing the sun, flame welcomes flame.
The diyas whisper a flickering ovation
to the lord of light.
But as the sun climbs upward into the sky,
The wick grows shorter and shorter,
devours the oil,
Feeds the lamp-light,
And dies slowly into the morning.
Even the festival of light
ends in the soft darkness of night.

And yet, in a moment,
It ignites a flame!
