Wordle 212: A sackful of jokes


Hubbub breaks the ghostly silence
of feastly eating by the guests.
Humour torn from every breast
as laughter escapes with jocularity
Nectar-filled veins provoke hilarity
mirth explodes in outrageous glee
shaking shoulders, heaving lungs
hiccups, tears, hiatus comes:
engine running now on empty
a gasping plea for mercy hums.

I haven’t written for Brenda’s Sunday Whirl for some time, but Tillybud  is here, and we had a Wordle race.  Hers is a proper poem, beating mine into a cocked hat in half the time. I hope she posts it over at her Laughing Housewife blog.

    THAT must have been a sight: Viv & TB scribbling away, only occasionally glancing up to glare at each other, laugh, and immediately return to their respective scribble.

    Lucky for us, though.

    Getting together with friends and having a wonderful time sounds great, however we all have to take breath before we start the fun all over again.
