um so i was supposed to be writing something happy for aoelian, and came out with this instead. an oddity, oh yes, and probably not my best..... but it was the best i could do on short notice? (throaty giggles) lol


life is a happy prankster
giggling subtly in its throat
to add to paranoia
and piling mishaps upon

missteps upon

that which we call life - alive
dancing to a melody
of ever-splashing tears
demanding entertainment
of our days and of our years

(pay the piper or
be burned in
his pipe)

"(pay the piper or

Say, the shape could be smoke rising from the piper's pipe. At first I tried to see a tear falling into an urn; but the teardrop would be upside down!

Sis asks for happiness and you show her cynicism!? I can't help thinking this jester is rather malevolent, drunk--as it were--on our tears. I have a feeling the poem's shape means something. Question: What is the shape of a throaty giggle?

Seriously, aoelian, stop..... if I laugh any harder I will wake the baby!!

Yes, life does the throaty laugh (where do you think I learned it?).

thbbbbt :p



*sticks tongue out at you!*

Seriously? Throaty laughter? Life is doing this now?! You are rotten through and through! ;)

ps. THIS, although clever, DOES NOT COUNT. Now dance. ;)
