The sound of a baby's laughter.

As soft as velvet.
As bubbly as a brook.

Comforting.
Elevating.

Brings a smile on any face.
Induces hope in any heart.

The sweetest sound on Earth.

Shruthi said...

Dhanya, glad you are enjoying it! :)

Veena, yeah! But that's probably an older child - it is kind of stronger :))

Prashanth, he was so right!

Kadalabal, yes, thank you! :)

Vicarious joys of motherhood... I'll someday send you a poem I wrote about a baby....

M said...

Can imagine how much you must be enjoying motherhood:)

Gurl, you are influencing people far and wide, I can see :) including myself:)

Devaki said...

So true Shruthi! This post was divine!

I love babies too, but feel scared of the awesome responsibility of being a mother. Did you feel apprehensive before too?

Shruthi said...

Sunshine, why someday? I tried to find a mailing address on your blog - couldn't find it - and I am hesitant to leave my id here for you to find - could you copy the poem into this comment space? Else, we'll work out some other way - I love the way you write - would love to read your poem.

M, ha ha, good! Don't say it too loud, though - I don't want to be held responsible for population explosion :) - Btw, do I know you, by any chance?

Devaki, oh man, apprehensive? I was terrified! Even a day before the baby was born, I was wondering what I would do with it once it comes out. But I found that it was oh so natural. So don't worry at all! :)

Agree completely.
They give their all to a laugh and a cry and that is why it goes straight to your heart.
I can almost hear one as I read this! :)
