Paeans - and Aches

over the years

Sunday, October 30, 2005


To you who wandered by this night
Of happiness and warmth and light,
Here’s a wish for you, a hearty
Diwali wish from Caferati:

More chances taken, with a smile;
More craft, and skill, and strength, and style;
More words read, by more words smitten;
More words found, more words written;

More stories applauded by all those who
Make a difference to the inner you;
More verses that scan, and illuminate
Our lives, our loves and the mortal state;

And forever after, may your diya
Light up the same scene, only happier.

Originally posted on Caferati, last year. The wish still holds.
