Let's Celebrate Diwali!

Shivedita profile image

Well! India is celebrating Diwali in the coming week. It is a festival of lights. It celebrates the winning of light over dark. The story is Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile, he was king of Ayodhya and when he returned, people celebrated it with diyas/lights.

So, on this Diwali, I will be very happy if you can share some lines from your life that celebrates your light.

Mine is,

The peeking eyes

Disturbs sometimes!

To build a 'zero effect' frame

Is a tough game

But, Fearless

She reigns

For every jerk back

She accelerates ahead

In the lonely nights

She wins the fight

Their fierce eyes

Yet, she shines bright

On her own

A beautiful knight!

Always a pleasure!

Hi Shivedita,

What lovely prose and a great introduction to Diwali. Excuse my ignorance, was it a prayer ? We all need light in our life. 🙇‍♀️
