The Honest Hug

The Honest Hug

I reach out

and you incline

towards me in

ardent pleasing motion

Like a bird

on the calm breeze

of early morn

the nearness of you

warms me

your arms close

around my delicate form

and i in blissfull

    The imagery this etched on my mind was that of a baby reaching out to its mother to be carried.
