Fiery streaks fill the sky with light.
Plates full of sweet and savoury delights.
Rangoli made near the door
And twinkling bulbs which you adore
In the breeze oil diyas flicker
Status updates on Facebook and Twitter
Loud crackers that go bang and boom
Incense sticks give out their holy fume.
As Lakshmi blesses you and your loved ones
With health and prosperity in the times to come.
