Lull & LOL are Not the Same


I laughed out loud today. At the absurdity of life, the
cotton of the sky’s white lull. I have a million things

to tell you, but they all feel small; none human enough
for laughter, nor clear enough to make any sense of sigh.

Another 44 words for Bjorn’s Quadrille. Come play!

  1. A sense of sigh… what a great image… love it.. I think 44 words is the perfect length for poetry now..

  2. You’ve had so much fun with this prompt, De, and shared the joy with all of us.

    I think turning a lull into a LOL is the only logical thing to do.

    I read your first line as saying, “I laughed out loud … At the absurdity of … the[e]” (which is me, obviously). 🙂

    Great line break after this: “I have a million things”

    In the last line, I see this: “nor clear enough to make any sense of s-eye” … You and me both.
