Butter Scotch Laugh - Poem by Monita Soni

The sweet sound of you laughing
Is like a cup of mocha with a double shot of happy......
Warmth lingering in my throat.....my heart....my being

You laughed and looked away
Sunset hues deepening the glow in your cheeks
Laughter rising in rivulets....behind silky tresses

Misty brooks sang as you laughed
Then overflowing like mountain streams in gay abandon
Dancing gleefully into my pores...tumbling...falling

Sunrise-drenched laugh of yours
Stirred the bumblebees to a frenzied viennese waltz
The flowers pouted....as 'they' forgot their chores and more

Your laughter gambolled freely
Like doe-eyed gazelles in green meadows
The magic of all seasons in the musical notes....rising

Now the spring has gone from my window
Taking the balmy beach strolls with her
I can see traces of your laughter on stray leaves... clinging

My sore eyes searching the woods relentlessly
For you and....the solitary tear you had
Carefully tucked away from my lashes....one morning....
- Monita Soni
