Celebrating the Hindu holiday of Diwali with a Naga Uta poem.
Rice flour footprints
shimmer golden all the night
in glowing paths of
candle columns unsleeping;

dyas welcome Lakshmi,
herald of this newest year
full-lit with knowledge…
vanquishing dark ignorance;
celebrating our
collective humanity.

Life is mirth, and love,
and blessed, we gather as one…
all enmities forgotten.
