Laugh And Run On [Revised]


Rambling about pink hat on my head followed by
amused smiles and laughter-lead questions where
I find energy they see in me, not realising it comes
from them, their happiness; even if laughing at me
instead of with me it infuses me with more power
to move faster in having a great time, humming a
tune that explodes in the air

If my apricot T-shirt combined with a pink Fedora
can inspire people to conspire in sending positive
feelings which take me high, floating on streams of
their fun and joy then there's nothing better on earth
than to laugh & run on, world under me blossoming
in colourful joy and delight as I continue my flight,
buoyed by the percussions in my melody

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
