I hold onto being held –

let go without letting go.

Happiness is within reach

of open palm and spread arms


A closed hand makes a clenched fist,

which neither points or picks up

An extended hand shares life –

halving sorrows and doubling joy.


Embrace the Force that’s with us –

God’s presence is always present

Love is touching and feeling;

and hugging is hearts kissing.


The trees have leafy branches –

Elephants have flexing trunks –

Whales have soft underbellies –

All embrace our Mother’s love.


So to be heard listen well,

to be seen look carefully,

to be touched grasp intently,

to be loved share grace and peace.
