J is for Jocular

Jocular is an unusually harsh sounding word

Not a common one that I have repeatedly heard

In some circumstances joke making is absurd

The timing of sharing a joke is better off deferred


I am able to annouce to you with great delight

That today I felt quite cheerful and bright

Jocularity is my precise mood state tonight

Making sharing these words a pleasure to write


Earlier this week I was stuck in darkened gloom

Trying to give my thoughts their required room

Without sinking into a dominating relentless doom

To clear it all out and instead let the jocularity bloom


Source of challenge









I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
