The magic of absurdity (blog marathon post 26)
My best friend and I often chat on an Instant Messenger. Sometimes what we talk is so absurd that we crack up completely---and then have to call the other just to hear the absolute helpless laughter. After one such mad session, I wrote this poem which I share below. If you have a friend with whom you can laugh like this, you will probably love this one. Read and let me know if you liked!
Guffaw, chuckles, mirth, cracking-up, cacchination, hilarity
For a whole five minutes.
Oh, the joy of utter nonsense.
A priceless memory made.
Life gifts you unexpected moments
And sometime in the future,
We will look back and say
“Remember that time when we laughed so hard that our tummies hurt?”
And we will laugh again.
Reliving the magic of absurdity
And it’s power to heal.
