Life Through The Eyes Of Poems

Life can be carefree, or destructive,
or just plain boring.

But what is life really like...
when it's told through a poem?

3. Deepavali - the Festival of Lights

Yellow sun shines in my eyes,

I wake up; it’s a beautiful day.

The day has finally arrived,

Deepavali; the festival of lights.

 

Smells of succulent, delightful dishes,

Swift and sweet in the mild air,

Drift to my nose, holding so close,

Wanting to stay but having to go.

 

I rush downstairs, eager out of bed,

Hoping to see what I’ve craved for so long;

My mother cooking and food-tasting,

Getting ready for this year’s feast!

 

I creep into the kitchen,

And wow! What a sight -

Packed with curries and sweets,

Waiting to be eaten tonight.

 

I join mum as she stirs thick dhal,

As she adds a teaspoon of masala and more,

I stand by her, gazing,

Her hands move magically, gracefully.

 

Sadly, the moment couldn’t last forever,

Soon it is time to get dressed,

To pack them in aluminium boxes,

I wait - patiently- eyeing for my favourite treats.

 

We wait for our brothers to come,

To dine with us like every year,

Baring gifts and delicacies to share,

Not a year I can remember without sweets.

 

Until next year, my friends,

Will we ever meet again,

To enjoy each other’s company,

To join together as one.
