Son of Sonnet is back with another bit of light-hearted fare, which I think is particularly appropriate for February, the month of both Valentine’s Day and Mardi Gras.
Today’s poem, “Laughter,” is quite fun, and it’s about something we could all do with a bit more.
Your generous subscriptions to my SubscribeStar page have made it possible to patronize Son’s work. As a community of artists, readers, and pundits, we should work together as much as possible to cultivate and support one another’s talents. I can’t pay Son much—yet—but I’m able to offer him something for his talents because of your generosity.
Every artist as dedicated to his craft as Son deserves both recognition and support. I would encourage you to consider a subscription to Son of Sonnet’s SubscribeStar page as a way to encourage the growth and development of an eloquent voice on our side of this long culture war. Conservatives often complain about not holding any ground culturally; now is the time to support the culture that is being created.
By Son of Sonnet
What will it be?
Is it a joke? Is it a game?
Ho ho, he he.
Laughing at the sound of your name?
Eager to play,
The air is full of expectation.
Waiting all day,
To dance alongside inspiration.
The sky is full,
and rain withholds the fox from fun.
Caught in a lull,
wanting the reveal of the sun.
Take off your socks,
and splash the puddles with your feet.
Play with the fox,
and make the most with friends you meet.
