  2. A few Lanternes —
    Tea
    Friend sips
    Honeyed cups
    Gold infused brew
    Time

    Stars
    Pinholes
    Magic sights
    Twinkling,sprinkling
    Dreams

    Sun
    Crispy
    Shrinking days
    Pumkined shades breathe
    Treats

    Tis the season of Diwali- the Indian Festival of Lights
    Bonds
    Shining
    Childhood lights
    Illuminate
    Me

  5. SKY SHOW

    Clouds
    Gather
    Playfully
    In sky lots
    Blue

    Shapes
    Appear
    In sizes
    Huge as Macy’s
    Floats

    White
    Fluffy
    Animals
    parade above
    Us

    Sun
    Spotlights
    Their antics
    Ever changing
    Zoo
