Divali Celebrations

Hindus everywhere today celebrate

The Festival of Lights, their Divali,

To mark how goodness can claim victory

Over evil; a day to contemplate:

And as families and friends congregate

To share food, gifts and camaraderie,

Though Christian I honour this day for we

Are all brothers, so I participate.

 

When darkness comes our isle will be alight

With deyas that will burn throughout the night.

Like Christmas Divali comes once a year,

A chance for us to make a brand new start,

To sow the seeds of love within each heart;

What better way to spread peace and good cheer.

  1. Hi Maryse

    What a beautiful festival in its thought and meaning. I wish you and your nation all the things this festival strives to inspire —

    Like Christmas Divali comes once a year,

    A chance for us to make a brand new start,

    To sow the seeds of love within each heart;

    What better way to spread peace and good cheer.

    Such a wonderful message and event for everyone. We need this in our current time and situation but then again, the world always needed these intentions.

    Thank you for poetically vocalizing the gist and importance of this lovely celebration.

    Take care
    Wendy

    Oh, if the world could learn this lesson. We are all brothers and need to treat each other with love and respect. Grand write.
