Laughter

You tell your story.......

Your friends' eyes twinkle in anticipation and delight,
Words fail you - but the story continues in your heart,
laughter pours from your stomach and the tears spill,
you struggle with your anecdote
broken words.....and shrills break through the air!
Painting by Lorraine Rigby. 2016
Your friends face each other....
The tale lost in cathartic merriment,
The love is infectious,........
Words fail and fail every time!

The bond of laughter has begun,
No rhyme or reason why.....

But our story is now lost in time....
and the stranger wants to join in!

Laughter can be the release of the struggling soul,
When we find home with a bird of the same feather.

The purge of the deep-self has renewed us!

The story is retold without the hysteria,
and a wry smile is all that is had.........
..........................................with exhaustion.

But sometimes, the soul has not been purged enough,
and so the laughter will continue................................

May it long continue, my friend.
