Bubble of Joy

Day 21 of the ‘Post A Day 2011′ challenge.

Laughter erupted
An unquenchable flow
Like a mighty river
It burst into the open
No fire could extinguish
These flames of pure joy

Heads were raised
At first indignation
Then a small smile
And soon everybody was grinning
They got closer to take a look
Their arguments forgotten
Anger faded
Until only laughter remained

The children simply played
Ignorant of the bliss they were sharing

Children’s happiness, the merriest sound of life!
