It's that time of the year again!

My first attempt at Nonet poetry, written as part of the wonderful tutorial by Preetilata of My white window. You can read more on Nonet on Write Tribe.

Nip in the air and warmth in the hearts
It's that time of the year again!
Floating candles and tea-lights
Time for love and merry
Sweets and savories
Crackers crackling
Prayers, hymns
Good cheer

It indeed is that time of the year and I wish you all a very happy and bright Diwali. Wish you the best of festivities ahead!


  1. Happy Diwali to you Naina. Loved the Nonet.:)

  2. Nice one - on the occasion and for the prompt. Happy Diwali :)


  3. Ah, yet another form of poetry to master! Thanks for sharing this beautiful example of it with us!

  4. What a festive nonet Naina :) Happy Diwali!!

  5. Your nonet is awesome!! Diwali sounds like a wonderful time. Happy Diwali to you!

  6. You have aroused the sleeping poets with this beauty :)

  7. Happy Diwali, Naina and love your nonet full of bliss, hope. Simply vibrant:)

  8. Naina, honest confession here, your post has cheered me up. It has been a very bad day today but thanks to you for now i have a smile on my face. I loved, loved, loved your nonet poem and i earnestly believe that you should write more of it.

    Thanks Naina

    P.S: Prayers and hymns = It's 4 syllables but it needs to be 3.

    you can remove and with a comma.

  9. What cheerful pictures and your nonet nailed it, Naina!
