1790

On the street where i live; bamboo structures set up for
the Divali Lights later


with twilight comes
a drama of deyas lit -
divali mystique

I love blogging when it makes me learn something. Of course, I had to look up divali and now I wish I could plan a trip to India in the fall. Do you also celebrate this in Trinidad?
