These Hands

Lines drawn in palms
Sands of time
Run through
Boundaries, hills
Crisscrossed markings
All-thumbs and fingertips
These hands…

Touched, warmed
Frosted glass, built
Gripped life, lit campfires
Loved, tussled, touched stars
Tipped, clutched, dropped
Carried groceries
Crosses, babies
Mopped up, spilled
Hustled, scrubbed pots
Baked, tanned
Got burned, cooked
Spaghetti, soup-to-nuts
Poured cold water, iced cakes
Shovelled, tossed snowballs
Lost, won, lost again
Paddled upstream
Brushed, tousled
Child’s bright strands
Untangled silver mops
Toiled, slipped up
Took away, drooped
Cupped smiles, tears
Felt rain and sunlight
Slammed doors, etched years
Pried, tried, stretched
Opened windows, ached
Prayed, praised

These hands…
Lived, embraced, gave
