Ticks of Laughter

Ticks of Laughter
By Brett Somers
Written 3-12-16
What is this peacefulness you seek? This love that has you smiling cheek to cheek A second hand ticks And you laugh at it Ashes fall And you’re having a ball Do you not know the mood the brood the attitude Of the day in dismay Of the people on display A joy splat array of hurried and buried Multitudes of jury A bubble inside you Seeks to defy you Of worry Of that scurry That seems to belie you Remembrance of honey This drip sweet retreat Of all that was, is now, to be How you do it If they only knew it Would blast right through it And the night would be a ray Of moonlight Stars vibrating Clear skies Soft inviting wind To let them in

Hello Brett! Back for some more good stuff! "A bubble inside you Seeks to defy you" I like that part! Your work is thoughtful and introspective. Quite liked this one indeed. Always, Laura

Hi Brett, Welcome to Poetry Soup. It will be a delight to read and become familiar with your poems in the future. As for now, I will greet you with the same smile others passed when I first joined the soup. Wishing you and your poetry the best. I hope you get to meet all the nice poets around here STARTING with me- SKAT :-) Please drop a hello and tell me a little about yourself if you wish. I would like to be your newest poetry soup "FRIEND" Hugs* SKAT

Hi Skat, Thanks for the love. I'm new to poetry in that I've written a handful of poems in my lifetime just for fun but this last week have felt compelled to write a poem a day, and share them, as I look inward at my own spiritual journey. Any encouragement you have is welcome. Since I'm not a "trained" poet I welcome any advice as to the proper form and such.

Hi Brett, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
