The Beautiful ridiculous

collage.jpg

A light edges its way across his face

a turn of lip, a snarl, silly smirk

a voice disguised

a song obscured

an atmosphere transformed.

Hilarity explodes.

Contagious.

Embracing.

Brilliantly ridiculous.

Until…the gut is punched.

No joke to be heard

No laugh to be shared

and the comic is silenced.

Lips ripple a mumble.

Vibrancy of light dims

but spark remains

in a song, quieted to a hum

awaiting the sleepy dream of peace

as it settles

a tranquil surrender,

and life’s burdensome weight

is finally relieved.
