The Poem of Lights

lightThe color of light bewilders
the night in many….
in some it even frightens
the night out of them…..
for a few life is lost somewhere
in that moment just before
the clock clicks to dawn….
For some others the night is
so long that every piece of
light folds itself a thousand times
and slowly spreads inside across a life time
finally brightening up at a moment
just before the dying spirit kisses
the mortal lips….. Awake…..
Awake! because there is so much
darkness in the world
Diwali lights might just not be enough……
