Rain on Diwali night

On festival night ,it rained light,
A sky’s nervous fireworks show.

It was not sky’s light in sound,
But as steady soft fall on night.

Serial chilly crackers sputtered
Like sesame seeds in frying oil.

Kids lighted earth-pots of light
And ran back,in rain and fright.

Earth pots sent up fire flowers
In falling rain like trees of light.

Rain did not dampen crackers
Nor cracked kids’ festive spirit.
