The Poetry of Laughter

Whatever you are doing…STOP!
Right now!
Take a 10 minute break and watch this video to the end.
Why? you ask.
Because you need to, I say :)

does laughter require a language
and would a smile need subtitles?
uncomplicate your understanding
with prideless power
spread the contagious clarity
it is that easy

Surely You Jest

  2. Dear Sonya,

    What a neat surprise to see Sri Mooji here. I like him a lot, and Papaji and Ramana Maharshi as well.

    What a great term, “contagious clarity.” Your poem, the video, this post…so very, very refreshing.

    Thank you so very much for this :).

    All good wishes,



    1. Thanks Robert. I’m happy that you identified with and enjoyed the video. I only recently heard of Mooji through my brother.

      So glad you liked the poem. Somehow it is more difficult to create a light hearted poem. I wonder why that is…


  3. I love the way you’ve written your poem about laughter and language, it is true no one needs a specific language to laugh or smile, the way one laughs or smiles indicates his/her feeling.Thank you for this Sonya.


I would love to have your thoughts
