Day 12 - L (A to Z Challenge) and Day 14 - Light (Napowrimo)

Day 12 AtoZ Challenge

Art and affirmative alliteration for Day 12. 


All my art works of AtoZ challenge have been done in acrylic inks and coffee wash.

Day 14 Napowrimo

There is no home without me

If there is, they long for my presence

A place of worship abounds with me

It pervades sanctity, an offering to God

I always win in the eternal war over darkness

I am a child’s glee and lovers’ delight of the poem has been removed to facilitate for future submission. Thank you for visiting.

*Deepa means Light.

*Ravana - the ten-headed Demon-King of Lanka. He was a great scholar and master of multiple skills but the 10 emotions (/ten heads - anger, greed, lust, envy, pride, ego etc.) that ruled him led him to his ultimate defeat and death.

*Dussehra - also known as Vijayadashami is a major Hindu festival celebrated at the end of Navaratri every year. It involves the burning of effigy of the Demon-King, Ravana to mark the victory of Lord Rama; the victory of good over the evil, light over darkness.

Napowrimo prompt:

Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that delves into the meaning of your first or last name. Looking for inspiration? Take a look at this poem by Mark Wunderlich, appropriately titled “Wunderlich.”

I am not sure about how this has turned out. It was hard explaining my name - to many associations popped up and I had to sieve through. Do let me know your views.

"I gain a new name with association

Unlike water, I am a fiery brand

I can start small and gain an avatar"

Loved these lines... That hold more deeper a meaning.
