My Father’s Laugh

My Father’s Laugh
 
Grey at the temples
is a recent thing.
Before he was all
ash brown hair
with a mustache
that put Tom Selleck’s to shame.
 
His laugh though…
 
I didn’t hear it often,
that’s what made it memorable,
the rarity of it.
It mirrored his sister’s.
At family gatherings
we tried,
in vain,
to copy it,
without success.
