A poem written for the Taboo Words competition, November 2020
One Enormous Hug
I’m going to gather them together,
all the things that bring me joy.
And maybe there will be a tear in my eye
as I look around and take them in
then reach out,
arms spread wide...
and I’ll wrap them,
pull them close
in what must surely be
the world’s largest ever... hug!
(Thankfulness. Taboo words: thankful, grateful, thoughtfulness, family, celebration)
