' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' 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.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
