#WOTY Laughter/laugh.

My Woty was inspired by many posts but Deb from Des world inspired me to chose mine. Press here to read Debbies

My word of the year the one to inspire, it is a word that will keep me on track, the one to make me feel I have my Mojo back.     

I didn’t help my funny bone, I neglected my happy,
By failing to remember, how to not be unhappy.
I forgot to tend to the need of mine to smile,
to exercise my face at least for a little while.

So in twenty twenty, the plan is to be,
The smiliest person, of any you see.
I want to laugh until eyes spring a leak.
To inject humour each time I speak.

I want back that cheeky I once had,
It got lost in the busy, replaced by sad.
People enjoyed my infectious grin,
The one that shone from deep within.


I can still recall the feel of a laugh,
The giggle made; as I trip up the path.
The burbling feeling of one almost there.
The ache in my belly, a huge gasp for air,


So join me as I inject this with a smile,
And share one of my favourite poems
By Spike, who made the world laugh
for the longest while.

If you smiled just,  while reading, leave a comment, share the fun.
Let me know if you have a poem or saying that always makes you grin.

    1. Each time someone tells me my words made them smile, my face takes on the shape, of a circus clown . Thank you for my morning face yoga and the lift in my mood. Have a great day.


  1. That’s a fabulous WOTY Ellen and thanks so much for mentioning and linking to my post! I’m so pleased to hear that I helped you choose a word. What a great word smile is – I have a smile named after me the ‘Debbie Smile’, as my family always tease me for smiling for photos 🙂 . I see nothing wrong with that! Your poem was great and I always enjoy that one by Spike, it says it all so well. Wishing you a happy smiley year 🙂

  2. Woty.. I will keep this word inside to remind me of you Ellen.
    Spike was a favorite person growing up. Your writing gets better and better.
    Never forget the secret & your infectious laughter.


  3. I love this Ellen a beautiful way to start the year💜💜. What makes me smile is a saying my dad had for any of us who hurt ourselves ” never mind it will be a pig’s foot in the morning” keep smiling 💜

  4. A lovely positive word for the year and I look forward to seeing how it goes for you. Reading Spike Milligan is enough to raise at least a smile, if not a full-bodied laugh 😊

    1. I will, I may try writing some humour and see if it works, I believe its not as easy as it sounds. My writing errs on the dove or dirty grey, so maybe I will practice rite here. P s. Mary you were lurking in my spam box for some reason? I escaped you forth with 😊 happy 2020.

  5. Thank you, Ellen.Loved it! My modest offering…

    Oh, the joy a smile brings…
    It alters a sad face:
    makes features sing!
    It lifts the heart up;
    dares gloom to stay.
    Go on, folks, try it –
    try it today!

    Given with a smile. Cheers! Joy xx
