silliness

outside the world pulses

with the energy of the weekend
soft and sleepy and easy

i am bright after a night
and day spent in good company

often i am accused
of not laughing
like bellies and lungs are
supposed to
and
often i am accused
of spending too much time
with mouth downturned and head
too full

what can i say?

the world is a heavy place

yet

silliness regrounds worn and weary limbs,
gently reminds the heart love can be light,
too

there is a reason we watch children at play in awe,
there is a reason we smile bittersweetly and sigh
about what a thing innocence is

supposedly lost to the transition of adulthood
is a silliness i am attempting to resurrect

one prematurely buried by serious intentions

laughing clears up emotional congestion though,
brightens dim spots and uplifts where lifting is needed

each time i ache with happiness,
i remember

‘hey, life isn’t so stark’

so

find a reason to laugh today

better yet

find two

much love,

zoe
