And Then Came The Laughter


Then Came The Laughter

by: JP Leddy


It swallowed my breath as it forged through my body

Rapturously overtaking my muscles convulsively

My heart pounding in octaves higher and higher

As I felt light headed and light footed where gravity lost power

My mouth forced opened as air rushed out with angel force

Then came the laughter , followed by more, and then the joy

Submittted to Thursday’s Poets Rally Week 39


I accept the following week 39 participant awards and thankΒ  Poet leaders Jingle and Leo for the opportunity


I am also honored to accept the Perfect Poets Award for Thursday Rally Week 38 and appreciate the nominations from my peers and the Poet leader Jingle for her efforts in these endeavors.

Touching wall

Finger bleeds red

rusted nail

I like to nominate Jamie Dedes for the Perfect Poets Award for Week 39.
