Diwali - By An Immortal Nile’s Poet

George Onsy

- George Onsy (Egypt)

Fallen in love
With Eternal India
I find myself
Drowned deep
In the Ganges
Forgetting my whole life,
Letting go
All about me
And from those
Mystical depths
I can clearly see
Its gentle waves
Still twinkle with
The dancing flames
Of Diwali
As they forever call
All human souls
To come to Light
From Darkness,
To come to Truth
From Untruth,
To come to Immortality
From the very Death
Each and every mortal
Suffers, thinking that
Alive in this
Ephemeral world
We may ever be.
