Diwali, Festival Of Candles And Light

"Even after all this time

the sun never says to the earth,

"You owe me."

Look what happens

a love like that

lights the whole sky."

 - Hafiz (1325-1390), Persian lyric poet

I didn’t know Diwali, I love Kupka who I consider one of the great painters of yellow and light. Thank you, Jane.

Tania, yellow was certainly one of Kupka's favorite colors.
Diwali is one festival that brings several religions together.
