Your Laughter - Poem by Sandi Holland

Your laughter blew into my life
With swift surprise.
It spun happily around me,
Whirling with dizzy speed.
Its breeze licked and kissed
At my ears.
Entering quickly,
It found places in my mind,
My heart, my soul.
It raced in,
Filling me with a whirlwind
Of joyous anticipation.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Appreciation for the laughter of a man, that can bring such joy.

    'It found places in my mind,
    My heart, my soul.
    It raced in,
    Filling me with a whirlwind
    Of joyous anticipation.'
    A perfect description of an amorous connection.

    Thanks for visiting. You've given an accurate and exciting evaluation. Too bad that some of the best romance poetry is based on idealistic and unrealistic fixations. Thank God that those feelings can certainly be had, later in life, in mature, long-lasting relationships, lol.
