Diwali’s Embrace

In the dark, Diwali’s embrace holds tight,

A festive light that clears all shades of grey,

Where homes sparkle with candle flames alight,

And rangolis enfold a warm array.

The victor’s triumph over darkness reigns,

When light dethrones all shadows cast aside,

Creating a world of bliss that remains,

Where love and blessings into hearts take flight.

So celebrate, let’s welcome this ancient light,

That triumphantly whispers, beauty and grace,

Let’s embrace this festival with all our might,

And get lost in its magic and grace.

And be illumined from darkness’s unkind sight.

Rangolis grace every front porch so gently,

In festive colors that never deceive.

Sweets and savory treats devoid of strife,

Melt into the mouth, such matchless taste,

As we give generously in this life,

And aid the needy, forgotten, or chased.

Let’s celebrate with colors of joy and love,

And bathed in firelights from heaven above.

Rekindling hope and love that’s all in place.

With open arms we welcome all guest,

And shelter all souls with warmth and light.

And let the festivities all our hearts employ.

As every home reflects the love that’s dear,

And embraces love’s sweet glow that’s in sight.

As we open our hearts to the world at large,

Merging hope and love so every soul can pair,

With a hearty dose that keeps us surcharged.

The firecracker’s excitement overstaying,

Filling the air with sounds of pure delight,

Evoking childhood memories that keep playing,

In our hearts, making everything so bright.

Let’s rejoice and tread this joyous trek,

That enlivens our spirit and hearts so deck.

Goodwill and Grace

Hark, it’s the festival of lights afar,

Where good overcomes all shades of dark,

All homes lit up like a shining star,

Dazzling the hearts with such wonder and spark.

It’s not just about light bulbs that shine,

But goodwill, love, and grace that enfold,

The senses that make this world just fine,

Gracing homes with beauty to behold.

The firework’s display anchors the light,

Spiraling into shapes up in the sky,

Its magic merges hope and love with delight,

Heightening the senses from days gone by.

So come spellbound in this magical scene,

And let your soul dance to light’s brightest beam.
