Exuberance Ignites

Exuberance Ignites

the sharing of joy
a powerful deliverance
the audience was asked
“does anyone have a Halloween joke?”

and there from the stands
too small to see
a child’s voice rang out
clearly with glee
“i do!”

no encouragement needed
the two-liner was shared
and the laughter was immediate
delighting in the child’s excitement

what a gift to the evening
so simple, unrehearsed
a solo performance
a star-burst of exuberance
