Sweet humour, diamond star of fun,

Dark sombreness now gone, anon!

Beat golden drums of laughter sweet,

Void of the gates where shadows meet.

Harvested perfumed thrills of Peace,

Leave far behind our dark abyss.

Come radiant Light, thou doth prevail,

Allay my woes and dismal tale.

Deep in the chambers of the Soul,

My Spirit’s glow, your only goal.

Once burdened by depression, me,

Unfettered by alacrity:

God's secret sacred sanctity.

Rose like a fountain to the sky,

Afresh, anew! I did not die.

I smiled within, deep in my core,

A face of love emit; aglow,

With hope and promise to redress,

Sweet cheerfulness I do caress.

Now laugh and dance, such jubilee!

What humour-saviour, God sent me.

      My Guruji says that a person's success should be measured by smile-o-meter. Lovely poem!

      We all like a good laugh. Which is why one of my favorite genres is comedy. Another wonderful poem, Manatita. And hilarious pictures!

      Yes, Audrey. Drifted a bit, haven't I?

      I would return to Love Divine sooner or later, God's willing. Much gratitude.

      In some ways, Phyllis, much of if not all, was and is still being influenced by Sri Chinmoy. Perhaps I was born with some good karma, but he has shaped and moulded me and has brought me where I am. He had a series called "Humour, my Only Saviour." We laughed a lot and in turn relieved his many burdens. Much peace.

      To recognize and embrace humour is one of the gifts of life. Does it contribute to the beauty of the soul? Most definitely ! Manatita, you bring delightful reminders to us about how simple things make a difference in life. Quite often, when I am troubled by minor issues, I look for the humour in it and find it is easier to overcome the issue and rise above it. I love your poem - well done and with good purpose. Thank you.

      I once had a boss who was very intelligent, serious and a wizard in his position as Dean of Finance at a college. Working in accounting is a very serious task - yet he could break up the monotony and stress by tossing out a little joke absent-mindlessly as he left the office, leaving us all in laughter and good cheer. He once said, when passing through, that a bed is the most dangerous thing in the world, for more people died in bed than anywhere. I so miss him - he was a pillar of strength, kindness, wisdom, and a dry sense of humour.

      Jamie, Bro. I am well. I'm sure that I have teased you a couple of times, and those lines about your wife were beautiful yet made me smile. Much love to you and family.

      Very interesting Mdcoggins. Glad to hear this. A truly spirited one. Higher blessings.

      Thanks manatita as humor is my way of life. I usually end my day with a show or something related to humor to relieve the dreariness of the day. Thanks for your interpretation and deliverance.

      Gracias Senora, Ruby.

      Man travelled for seven years and seven days in search of Truth. Finally, he met another with long matted hair, sitting in a dark part of a himalayan cave.

      Man: "At last I've found you. Can you tell me the meaning of life and the secrets of the universe?"

      Ras Yogi: "Strawberries."

      Man: "Strawberries! I have travelled for seven years and seven days to find you, and you tell me that the meaning of life and the secrets of the universe is strawberries?"

      Ras Yogi: (looking puzzled) "Isn't it?

      In Love and Light.

      Humor is certainly a necessity in life. It's uplifting and reduces stress. There's nothing like a good old belly laugh that causes tears to run down your cheeks.

      Love the poem Manatita as well as the jokes and video. We all need to laugh. Unfortunately my grasp of French is only enough for me to interpret the chicken and egg picture as : "Jimmy, answer me!" The chimp and computer, I have no idea. " it the book ????
