  1. “The earth laughs in flowers.”…. metaphorical I guess. Love Waldo’s quote anytime any day. Thanks for sharing

  2. Okay, could it be through the beauty that the flower radiates. it can only be this waving of the flowers to signify bloom.

  3. I love how he describes how the world laughs. If the world is very happy now, there should be a lot of flowers growing all around us.

  4. I don’t know if I think of laughter when I look at flowers, but definitely joy. I guess it’s pretty subjective in how we all react to them.

  5. I’m just wondering what’s on the writer mind. Well for me I’m always seeing the flowers laughing all the time, when there look beautiful.

  6. I may have to go beyond reading between the lines for this one? As if the speaker is comparing Earth to a woman? I could be wrong though. One of the most mysterious things I have read for sure.
