How much light does it take to light up the entire night sky

diyas

Imagine!

A river,

That flows with passion and purpose

Meanders slowly

Around a rock – glowing purple

A hue deeper than itself

Revealing

Polished, shiny, new

Amethyst

Inspiring children’s awe

The water pauses,

Sending ripples

In circular directions

Gently and soothingly

Spreading the moonlight

In elegant ballet-like actions

One day, an array of 1 million candles it accepts

Way more than it can handle

Sacrificing, smilingly

Its once clean, untouched surface

Now drinking

 And drenching In dripping wax

Burning

Sins scorching away

Compassion at bay,

On the darkest moonless night

Allowing 1 million fingers to intertwine

To seek victory of light

Igniting

Souls that had lost their way
