Fireworks... haiku

Image Source

It is fireworks time in India - October 23 is Diwali, the festival of lights.
The Carpe Diem prompt 'Fireworks' is perfectly timed.

my dream to fly
i give wings to fireworks
-the glorious burn

happiness
in vibrant colours
fireworks

transient gaiety
quest for an ally
-fireworks


But Diwali celebration leads to a lot of discomfort for many. There is another side to the festivities - the trouble of loud sounds and polluted air.
Students are advised - 'Say No to Crackers'

Peeking out the window
craving for frolics to end
caged at home

    1. I agree, Mark...
      The over-enthusiastic, careless celebration can make others unhappy!
