Make The Silent Poetry on Floor - Rangoli*

Make The Silent Poetry on Floor - Rangoli*
A gift for all Poetry friends

The Poem is dedicated to Deborah Guzzi for the 
inspiration from her blog Onam India & 

Linda-Marie The Sweetheart of P.S

Making Rangoli is a thing of joy,
It would fill your heart with lovely pleasure,
When you would watch the silent Poetry,
Smiling in your house on the floor,  
And telling a lovely story, of your creative art, 
You would feel as if, you have found a treasure,
A treasure of wealth and a way to pleasure.

It is so simple a thing and so lovely in nature,
Even a child can get this priceless pleasure,
Just think a shape or design which you can draw, 
It would bring for you 
The wealth of happiness of immense nature. 

No hard and fast rules, to explore this pleasure,
Just clean your place, when you are at leisure, 
Specially the place, where you want to keep this treasure,
Make it as neat and clean, as a place of prayer.

You have many options to make a Rangoli*,
Of your choice and colors,
Take plenty of flower petals of different shades & colors, or
Just take powder of Arrowroot & make it colored,

Keep more of Purple, Yellow, Red or Green,
Both light & dark as you wish to paint and keep, or
Simply paint it with watercolors, to make, 
A gorgeous beauty at your door steps.

Make a simple flower, a lotus bud or a figure
Fill these flower petals, in the sketch you have made, or 
Just carefully spray different shade of powders 
You have made, as different color shades to use.

You can make a Lotus, You can make a Jesus 
Make a Temple, a Church or a bell of Christmas,
If you like it,  you can also make Mosque,
Just draw a circle & fill it with colors, 
Its joy to make a Rangoli & more when,
Watching it becomes a silent pleasure.

Just make it near the entrance point,
From where the Goddess of wealth 
May come seeing these colorful drawings,  
Sitting on her favorite seat of Lotus,
She would enter in your house 
With her blessings of wealth & pleasure.

Make a Rangoli to attract the Goddess of wealth,
Just keep only your dwelling free from heat and dust, 
Decorate it with your own made drawing and colors. 

See how the children would love this creative game,
Of Making designs and art, to bring in them
A joy of creating something from nothing.


*Rangoli (is a Hindi word) means Circle filled with different colors

    Very creative and reminding me of those days when many of us engaged in drawing Rangoli and we just a few days away from Dipawali or Diwali,to ring out wild bells to wild sky and ring in new days.....Ravindra
