' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' HER LAUGHTER


Tenderly
I set the trap

with words
to catch

the flight of her
laughter.

Her laughter
flew up into the air

turned into
an enormous bouquet

each petal
a butterfly

until my mind
fluttered with each

delicious delight

and the room
became a gilded box

that housed
the treasure of her

laughter

floating out of
the window

until it touched
the stars.
