Our gestures reveal a yearning (4)


I believe the answer is:


'a yearning' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'our gestures reveal' is the wordplay.
'reveal' indicates a hidden word.
'URGE' is hidden within 'our gestures'.

(Other definitions for urge that I've seen before include "Advise strongly or prod" , "Propel, drive onward" , "Encourage or entreat earnestly" , "Appeal to" , "Capital of Colombia" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
