Of laughter

She falls to the floor, continuing to snort with laughter. The dog excitedly wags their tale, content & alert. The room is filled with an air of sparkle & joy.

It hasn’t always been this way. Your eyes crinkle inn glee. You  as animated even more by her pleasurable reactions.

You go on with the story. Something about a laundry card, a machine & an opinionated onlooker; the anecdote of the day which brought that absurd moment to you here when you needed it.

The story is perhaps less important than the enthusiastic telling, & the much needed break from a long sorrow, a tension of many losses. Here’s a gain. Laughter is always a gain.
