A Poem by Allen Smuckler

short and sweet...sometimes one thought is enough. What's better than family?


I have long arms…

I don’t know why

I have long arms

but I do,


and I’m proud.


Everyone should have

what I have…

It would make

hugging each other

so much better…


and last

so much longer.

This made my day! All my family and friends are back east, and me, I'm here in San Diego...but the feeling of home and family simply resonate from this glorious shot!

Such a wonderful poem...the love is ever bountiful! Nice to meet you, Allen!

I love this! Hugs are the greatest things in the world. Great poem, Allen.

I am probably a lousy reviewer, as I babble on like a parrot, but for WC readers who have not read Allen before...not only a writer of fine poems ( like this one ) but also a writer for fine autobiographical prose. Read him !

What a great reminder that no matter what the length of our arms, we need to wrap them around our loved ones and friend more often than we do to show our love. Great write my friend
