Laughter



laughter
you should not be worn 
like a wild plucked exotic bloom
that will fade too soon 
from the picking 

you should grow by the gate
perennially welcoming 
those who pass 
with gentle color

Thank you to Magpie Tales

I love the notion of gentle, perennial laughter.

A wonderful wish for laughter. As our world presents us with its plethora of challenges, the concept of perennially growing laughter is most appealing.
