Laughter is light blue.
It tastes like coconut.
It smells like red roses,
and reminds me of
drinking strawberry juice.
It sounds like jokes.
Laughter makes me feel like
sleeping on the bed.

    I love this poem! You did a very good job describing something that’s difficult to explain.

    I think this is a fantastic poem! I absolutely love it and sent it to my friends (we’re all in our 30s!). We followed the same format and wrote our own versions. Thanks for the inspiration!
