if ever there was a word
encompassing just about everything you need
to get by in life,
surely it were this:
embrace life with both arms
not only to succeed, but thrive:
feel yourself embraced by love
with a kiss.

Merril is hosting dVerse Quadrille, and has asked us to write a poem of exactly 44 words featuring the word ‘Embrace.’ I spent a while trying to get the words into a heart shape, but block editor wasn’t having any of it, so I will try to post a heart-shaped poem on Instagram instead.
