Reunion--By Douglas Polk--United States


hugs from the grave,
in the photographs of black and white,
familiar faces,
smiles and laughter,
captured for eternity,
in the dusty frames,
boxed and numbered,
and hidden away,
in the attic,
a treasure trove,
patiently awaiting discovery,
when opened and viewed,
hugs will again be given,
from beyond the grave.

Douglas Polk is a poet living in the wilds of central Nebraska with his wife and son, two dogs and four cats. Polk has two pushcart nominations and over 800 poems published in hundreds of publications.
