haiku my heart ~ A Hug

Christmas gift, a hat.
Lovingly made by dear hands...
holds me like a hug.

 *****
Sometimes...
we all need a hug.
And sometimes...
there isn't someone there to give it to us.
What I've been finding more and more
is that hugs come when you least expect them,
in dreams, in a gift like a scarf or a hat,
wrapping yourself in a favorite sweater or coat,
the brush of tree while walking,
or from a furry friend...
Holding us over
until we can receive and give a hug
to those we love the most.

Here's to a hug
for the end of 2013
and to a wonder-filled beginning
of 2014.
