Laughkeepers

The Laughkeeper
Bring me all of your warm laughhs,
You laughers.
Bring me all of your feelings,
So I may wrap them in a soft yellow cloth
Where only hearts who see happiness may see. -LW--Sugar Loaf Elementary School

I'm thinking right now of the new North Carolina Literary Review's humor issue (scroll down to find my post on it) and how much fun it was, and still is, to read. It's a real laughkeeper, and those of you who don't subscribe, think about doing so, and giving a gift subscription to friends and family.



Who are some other NC Laughkeepers--poets, story-tellers, and fiction writers? Let me know about your own favorite Laughkeepers!

And a soft yellow cloth? Here's a photo of our daughter's dog, Arjun, wrapped in just that. He'd just been given a bath and wasn't happy about it.

One of my favorite laughkeepers is Jayne Jaudon Ferrer who read at JCCFS last week. She has published three poetry books and there is much humor in them.
www.jaynejaudonferrer.com is her website and she has a blog:www.commangoddess.blogspot.com

Check her out.
