A Hug

Written for:  1sojournal – Day 14, Creativity Challenge-“Hug”

Hugs are versatile.
Lovers meet after long
absence, and cling
to each other. Is a friend
sad, upset, rueful, in
mourning? No magic wand
exists to vanquish pain,
but a gentle hug can never
be in vain.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
