Poem:
.

let the smile be your umbrella
lucky are those who can sing acapella
music and laughter, a joy to be alive
a light heart will make the soul thrive

the best act is to be responsible
followed by being accountable
always choosing to do the next right thing
also being willing to change everything

the smart are those with a brain that is flexible
even luckier are those who understand technical
a Higher Power to guide ones thinking
forever avoiding the attitude that is stinking

may all of your dreams be in technicolor
earning the accolade of worlds best lover

Laughter

.

“Laughter is

the closest

thing to

the grace

of God.”

.

~ Karl Barth

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)          classic: each word only one syllable
.

smile
big grin
not a frown
full of good cheer
laugh

.
Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7
.
do the selfish thing
no need to think of others
I want what I want

the addict out of control
lives destroyed in the process
.

Poem:

.

of all of the gifts received in sobriety, laughter has to be the greatest
for too many it is the gift that is received the latest
most addictive substances act as depressants
those who start young never outgrow adolescents

the alcoholic/addict thinks a laugh is weird
hooked to an emotion that is feared
always laughing at someone or something
laughing at them because they are nothing

eventually they understand to laugh with, not at
at ourselves, not at others, always just a tit for a tat
the best humor is not at another’s expense
the laugh grows along with the common sense

a laugh a day will keep the doctor/shrink away
and for most they pray for another sober day
