    Deepawali

    Let the candle explore
    not the intricacies of 'reason'
    but a den of hatred.
    And on the walls of humanity
    to enlighten
    a devotee
    let it burn its wick to celebrate
    The Return.

    Let tonight stars come down
    and shed the gold
    on our huts and broken houses
    for we have shut doors
    and windows, even fissures.

    Let Light be Light
    not a spark to let the thatch
    wet aquatic bubbles.
