Soan-papdi

A Bokeh
Of Golden and Silver lights
Is slowly coming into Focus,

The Heaps
Of leaves underneath the trees,
Are glowing in the moonlight,

The Chills
Of winter
Are on their way,

It’s Time
To raid the attics and retrieve
The woolens and the blankets,

And Open once more
The Diwali Time Treasury
Of Fossilized Sweet-boxes;
Just wipe
Them with a damp cloth,
It works like a charm,
And continue the tradition of passing on
Soan-papdi from Haldiram.
