a lil bit of whimsy

After Diwali is what I am
Burnt paper and metal ends lying in a heap
Sweep them and set fire to them
Bits of sparklers come to life
Ghosts of what they were!

This is what was initially written.....


And then, when thought it was a bit dismal, this followed....
Ghosts they remain
Awaiting Rama`s return Lakshmi`s Glory or Krishna`s Triumph
To burst again in all splendour
As a thousand dazzling suns in heaven!

Oh wow. I do not have words to praise this piece of art. Its just wow. What a different and poetic look at the firecrackers and deepavali.
Maybe your Hubby should do guest post more often.
