sounds

Babies gurgle—sweet abandon,

onlookers twitter pure delight,

Stealthy chuckles slowly morph

to breath-gasping giggle fits

when a solemn room sits hushed.

After spring rains—a babbling brook,

songbirds warble high and low.

As a mischievous wind whistles,

it tickles leaves swishing the sky.

Many thanks to De Jackson at dVerse Poets Pub for this week’s Quadrille prompt: ‘giggle’.

    I liked those verses a lot. It is really great when laughter is contagious. Far too many people need a chuckle breaking right out into a giggle fit.
