We cannot change the cards we're dealt just how we play the hand
Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted
It's pretty easy to be smart when you're parroting smart people
-Randy Pausch


Laughter is deep gold
It titters and chimes like a lovely bell
It smells like dew-sodden grass in the early morn

It tastes like rich vegetable soup
Warm and comforting and right
Laughter is a gentle caress on my face
Soft as a feather but firm as healthy wood
It shimmers magically in the air, so faint as to be unreal
It appears round and deep and swift
So large and yet so small
It curls up inside my chest
Strokes the heart so tenderly
And tells me the world will be right

I just think this one is sort of pretty. To me, it's soothing.

This is great!  It totally captures the essence of laughter.  It's funny, I had to do an assignment just like this once and I chose laughter too :)  But just for the record, I like yours better, haha

I dont think I've seen laughter described as vividly as You did.

You put it into words perfectly.

Good work darling.:]
