Oh, Barb, this is a fine poem. It brought back golden memories of my mother and me. It is simple and well written with a rhyme of hold and gold. It is almost haiku like.

Thank you for sharing this fine entry. May awaits the outcome of this contest!

This is a good entry for the '2-4-2' writing prompt.
The picture is lovely and a good match.
Well done and good luck to you with the competition.

The title sounds like a personal desire for a hug. I wish I could reach into this computer and give you one. The photo is very topical, and fitting for the piece. You have a knack for writing just the right words, to help us to feel good about ourselves. Is this an ekphrastic poem? It appears as though it is. Your poem has nourishing words for the soul in each of us. Thank you for the uplifting poem.
Take care, Jesse

Barb,
Hello! I'm doing some reviewing, want to get up to 240 member dollars before I start to use the new computer.
I like your poem. I felt that way about my furry children.

Good morning, Barbara: Oh my doodness and yes, I did mean doodness. You are so right. There is nothing in the world like a tight hold or hug from our precious babies and children. It is a mommy's pure blessing and anyone else's for that matter. This is a great 2-4-2 poem entry. It gave me a big smile. awwwwww!

Short and sweet Barb yet means so much. 2-4-2 poems I feel are a difficult poem as they don't always get the message across. this one does because it is so true.
I like the subtle rhyme within the words. There is nothing like the feel of a child's firm grip on someone they love.

Simple and punchy. The use of the internal rhyme helps to speed the conclusion in comfort and confidence. Good luck in your chosen competition! Nice one.

I've learned the value of hugs during my later years. My family was not the hugging kind, I love getting and giving them now. They often imply acceptance. I usually sign off with virtual ones. Do you mind if I do it for you as well? I liked your choice of artwork too
