“Stretch Your Smile with The Frosting of Laughter”

Laughter is a choice for a joyful voice,

a wordless uplifting soul healing audible expression,

broadcasting mirth, merriment, gaiety and glee for thee and me!

It can start with a giggling snicker,

like a flickering candle at the end of a dark dreary tunnel,

exploding into a bursting brilliant beacon showing the way!

You are capable of a chuckling, rollicking, joyful laugh,

even to the level of a boisterous and crackling haw-haw-guffaw horse laugh,

a Divine source blessing for your daily spiritual relief,

certainly, a way to control disabling soul felt grief!

Author’s P.S. Laughter is an expression of compassion and empathy that multiplies in delightful soul healing therapies for yourself and all within its range! You may also call it “Soul Dancing” with joy!
