Poem: Emotional Contagion

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Emotional contagion is a poem about how he is inspired with happiness by her mood. As he watches her sparkle like sunshine in the mornings then tackling her day like the energizer bunny. He gains strength to make it through his day.

"Why Are Emotions So Contagious?" by Sophie Zadah


"Emotional Contagion"

He loves the way

her eyes glisten like the sunshine,

emitting sparks full of enthusiasm

as she begins her day.

Tackling each obstacle on her path

like the energizer bunny,

not winding down

until the day is done.

Her happy mood

spreads like a wildfire,

putting a smile on his face,

giving his soul strength

to soar like an eagle.

Thank you.

It does seem to put one in a better mood when surrounding oneself with happy people.

I am glad you thought the video worked well with this poem.

I searched for quite awhile to find one that would fit.

Have a great day.

Being around happy and fun-loving people can be contagious. That song by Pharrell Williams is the perfect video to accompany this piece.
