Hope : Haiku

Diwali-2
Courtsey

                    जीवंत नैना 
                    टिमटिमाते दीप 
                    अमावस में 

                    Eyes bright,full of hope 
                    sparkling lamps brilliant against
                    moonless dark dour nights

  4. I am reminded of Dumbledore's words: Happiness can be found in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light!
    Love your haikus!
