These Hands

Reaching ever outward.
Never in. Seeking to find,
To touch. To grasp and
Hold within a guarding grip.

They look to find, to land
Like butterflies on a flower.
To pierce. To ply. To pray.
And feel the fury of that touch.


  1. A bird in the hand, a helping hand, a safe pair of hands, hold one’s hand, at first hand, hand to mouth…So many idiomatic expressions with hands. So many things we can do with them.

    Feeling safe in someone’s hands. Beautiful, isn’t it?
