Neighborly Embrace

by Y. M. Roger

Etheree Contest Winner 

One life
With a smile
Or gift of mirth –

Hold not yourself back
From cheerful engagements.
Friendly waves cost you nothing,

And that note on a neighbor’s door?
It could be the sunshine they’re missing...
True ‘touch’ is so much more than physical!
