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
