River

This river of lights, each one a wish

Hope to pin your dreams upon

A prayer to Lakshmi to chase away the darkness

To turn your demons into dust

A river of starlight echoing the world above

Each light a prayer to the ghosts of old Gods

In the heart of the people

India, a place of colour

Smiles light the faces of people passing by

Hope lives here

The old Gods love them for it

Each light above, connected to the ones below

To the dreamers who believe Lakshmi will come calling

To greet each wish made tonight…
