Of Stars And Smoke!

Of Stars And Smoke!

The festival of colours, the festival of lights,
Diwali is here, making the city livelier and brightening its nights,
Diyas, Lamps, Rangolis, Sweets,
Without these the festival’s incomplete,
The sky is like a canvas with splashes of colours here and there,
The air gets drastically polluted but no one really seems to care,
Its like adding fuel to the fire, polluting what’s already in a bad state,
Realise this and take control before its too late,
So this diwali instead of being stupid, light a diya, spread happiness and make someone smile,
And make this auspicious occasion a one that’s worthwhile.

Shell At The Shore.

ShellAtTheShore

It lays lost somewhere on the Shore,
The Pearl’s been taken, the Beauty’s no more,
What now remains are the bits and parts of the Shell,
Once considered a Treasure, but now doesn’t seem too well,
The Shell’s all broken, it’s Dirt and Dust Clad,
But times could change for it from the Present Bad,
As Someone might just find it and to their Collection it might Add.
