The wind blows with a violence
destroying the ambience
gushing through with a wicked glee.
With the day going sultry in November
with that of a stuffiness and humidity all over
being most unusual during this season
when it usually rained cats and dogs with reason
with a coolness all around the day
with dew falling in the early hours of the day
being a change from the hot spell most welcome
now it is getting hotter and hotter in the days to come
with little sign of rain and pleasantness
the land getting drier with hotness
with water becoming a scarcity and cuddled
sitting with a look puzzled and thoughts muddled
we cope with the present state in a mood non prescribed
That being a house in which I was born
That being a house in which I cried first.
That being the house where I was brought up .
That being the house where I grew.
That being the house where I played
That being the house where I gave birth to my children
That being the house which was a part of me.
That being the house where my parents lived and died.
That being the house which looked grand and majestic
That being the very house now looks sad and waned,
That being the house now has lost its shine.
That being the very house now it silently weeps ad sobs
That being the house longing for its past glory and last pomp .
as it stands remote and battered by times and ill luck,
The crackers are in full swing
a noise emanates from one wing
deafening the ears with a terrific sound
a siege of smoke and fumes swarm all round
creating a terrible suffocation all through
the spirit of the festival is greatly through
with fun and merriment exalted to heights
entertaining and enjoying in all rights
that being synonym with the festival of light
where money is being spent with delight
once in a year it occurs in this part
with exchanges of good will and cheer in a sort
expressed by distributing laddoos and sweets
presenting dress to the near with a mood upbeat
patronising the needy to an extent moderately
goes Diwali where diyas are lit severally
illuminating the household outwardly
indicating a lighting up of the soul inwardly
