Meter Monday: "Laughter"

Meter Monday: "Laughter"

by Ashwini Selvakumaran

 

Bellowed or hollowed

A giggle or a chuckle,

Will it just be a small laugh?

Or one that will make your knees buckle.

 

For a laugh is a simple gift

Granted to us each day,

An invitation handed on a silver platter

Inviting us to partake.

 

A hoot or a snort,

Nonpareil is this gift

It never encumbers,

And it releases all lenitives.

 

You don’t have to be sentient

A laugh is simply not a crime,

Laughing is an orotund

A memory that’s worth your time.

 

Will it echo or fade

Sink and die down?

None of those things

Because my child, a laugh simply turns your day around.
