Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Laugh Out Loud

Laugh out loud
Gretchen Ruben

I was on the Long Island Railroad one night

a somber face among many somber faces

chugging along in silence to home

so I could turn around and do it all again the next day

 It was the normal, silent evening commute

Until I saw a hand move slowly toward the floor 

and a man put a box down, opened it, and withdrew his hand

What happened next, I will never forget

it was am mechanical laughter machine

And as the laughter came from the little box 
and the people nearby heard  they began to laugh

and the laughter spread from row to row
and within minutes, these somber folks

were all laughing until they we could not breathe
And the man put the box away
and smiled
So go- be a laugh machine!
and that's poetiquejustis
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with shouting. 
Job 8:21
