Hugs beget hugs


They must start

With you.

One is the promise

Of more to come.

Hugs engender trust

A promise of friendship,

Kinship even.

They speed up the heart;

The blood flows

With the promise of


A grasping of bonds

This hug

Building hope

A melding of

Heart beats

Enriching me and you

As us is formed..

There is light now;

Just enough

To show the way.
