Laughter

Laughter which starts deep in the belly
bubbling up and out
sending forth abundant glee.
Tears flow in helpless mirth
as wave after wave
of unexpected laughter
transforms me
leaving me hick-upping
giggling like a delighted five year old
only to catch your eye
and dissolve again
in the healing energy of laughter.

I want only friends
with whom I can share
these magical moments when
we merge into the
richness of uninhibited laughter
dissolving all sorrows and barriers
leaving us smiling all day
at the memory of this precious moment.
