Present Humor

From there to here, and here to there, 
funny things are everywhere.  ~ Dr. Seuss



I love how air puffs out on the first syll-
able, hue, humor, human, human-ness.

I love her slight smile while meditating
so delightful to balance, to ease pain.

I love the huge laugh of the newcomer
who hung out with us at last night’s party.

I love the voiced aitch in who what where why
which join how to spell curiosity.

I love knock-knock jokes because I must part-
icipate, asking Who’s there? and then Who?

I love finding an owl sitting above
because I heard it and then looked for it.

I love the slight differences of hoot
who and hue, feel which puffs more on your hand.

I love your company, how we can be
silly and lighten up each other’s heart.

I love your take on the many facets of humor.......the serene smile, and especially the huge laugh - my cackle can be loud. My great grandson never tires of saying I laugh like a witch. In which I take some pride, LOL.

Is it only humans that laugh? I am sure the laughing hyena is not bursting his britches. Did someone in the distant past say "Life is a bit of a joke, isn't it?"

Being silly and seeing the mad side of life helps one to endure even in the darkest of situations. I love huge contagious laughs also and witches cackles like Sherry blue Sky's :)

humor has many forms but to have a 'sense of humor' is to be specially gifted

a surprise act, which always place us on a hamster stool,
keep rolling, keep laughing.
