Comic relief – WQWWC

By the time I’m done living, I want my entire being to be thoroughly engraved upon with laughter lines of hilarious moments stumbled upon. Jacqueline

Truth comes out in moments of laughter and real life circumstances serve as fodder for comedians who turn them into amusing anecdotes with the underlying truth nicely or sometimes not nicely veiled.Image result for images for comedy

I certainly love a hearty laugh for life can get too serious at times but there are times that we’ve got to be truly mindful of things that we laugh at, for not everything is a source of comedy. Crass jokes about rape, molestation et al are distasteful, to say the least.

I enjoy searching out good funnies every day and laugh till tears run down my face. My husband and I get to share jokes that we find and that also serves as a warm moment for us when we are together 😉

On the other hand, if not for the seriousness of the issues at hand, the state of the World politics has become a comedy of sorts. The political commentaries have been thoroughly entertaining to read and watch and beneath the deluge of opinions that everyone seems to have, the truth lies somewhere.

I prefer comedy without the tragedy

for laughter is a sweet melody to the ears

and rhapsody that enriches the soul.

  1. It WILL be interesting to see how the USA election pans out in the end. It’s such a black comedy at the moment – not that our politics here are any better 😦

  2. What a sweet haiku. I loved your words, as always. Comedy and tragedy seem to be the yin and yang. We need both sides to appreciate the other. Hugs, dear friend. ❤

  3. I love comedy and laughing but you’re right––not all jokes are funny. Some jokes undermine the integrity of important issues that should be taken very seriously. I like the quote you chose and I absolutely love your beautiful poem. 🙂 xx

  4. Hi Jacqueline, Excellent post! You probably wonder why I’m commenting here. Colleen, (Silver Lining) asked me if I might like to start up this writing challenge again. What do you think? Did you love it? Would you want to participate again? Might you want to co-host the challenge? I’d love to hear from you. 🙂


I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
