Squeal of Delight

Dear Readers, 

I hope this little poem will either take you back in time to some sweet memory or maybe just remind you of how easy it is to make a person feel special. 

First Day

Walking across campus,

from thirty paces

I hear a soft squeal–

decibels mount steadily—

subtly changing,

increasing

as two college girls

walk toward one another;

 

four feet out

arms lift in unison;

 

three feet,

fingers dance,

tingle with anticipation;

 

two feet–

one foot–

seven inches

   reaching

      reaching–

 

squeals crescendo–

full hug contact!

“You’re heeeere!”
