Laughter is a River

A day without laughter is a day wasted.

Charlie Chaplin

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! This poem is inspired by Love Like Salt by Lisel Mueller.

It whisks us away
Uncontrollable and unstoppable

It spills over in swirling rivulets
Tumbling from every nook and cranny

It passes smoothly over rocks
Hidden in the bend

It becomes an ocean

Sometimes we can nearly drown

It runs swiftly around the world
Always bearing a reason

We consistently rely on it
to restore us and refresh us.
