Laughing Like A…

She said something absurd
And it made him laugh.

Laugh like a hiccupping hyena
Laugh like a deranged clown
Laugh like a teenager in love.

He cracked a joke and got the punchline just right.
It made her laugh.

Laugh like a stream
Laugh like a loon.
Laugh like a trumpet underwater.
Laugh like the stars tickling the moon.

She whispered “I love you.”
And it made him laugh.

Laugh with pride.
Laugh with joy.
Laugh with the sun’s morning light.

He whispered back “I love you too.”
It made her laugh.

Laugh like a macaroon’s softness
Laugh like a shining star
Laugh like a child’s delight.
Laugh like a lyrical lush.
