Hands

Hands touch and feel,

listen and speak.

Hands of an athlete…

quick and sure

compliments supple and strong –

poetry in motion.

Hands of a technician…

precise and careful

compliments intuitive and diligent –

embodied instructions.

Hands of an educator…

open and directive

compliments assertive and self-disciplined –

lifelong mentor.

Hands of a mother…

soft and warm

compliments nurturing and sustaining –

bestows self-esteem.

Hands of a healer…

gentle and soothing

compliments restorative and wholesome –

sanctifies hope.

Hands hold and grasp,

create and bless.
