These Hands

By Alisa Battaglia

These Hands
Extend companionship in a world of lonely hearts.

These Hands
Hold a furry face with kisses. Beloved furkid!

These Hands
Button up the shirt of a snotty nose boy on a cold winter day.
Where’s Momma?

These Hands
Toil to move the soil and tend the garden for future nourishment.

These Hands
Bake cakes that delight and meals to please.

These Hands
Make beautiful things to enjoy and balms to heal.

These Hands
Receive goodwill and bouquets of flowers.

These Hands
Fold laundry, sew and clean.

These Hands
Raise to my face in sadness, cover my tired eyes and smooth my hair to what the world is becoming.

These Hands
Animate expressing my Soul.

These Hands
Lift a baby and close to my heart whisper to this soul life, “I See Beautiful You.”

These Hands
Hold memory tracing the muscles of your body and face.

These Hands
Hold a heart I’ve been entrusted to.

These Hands
Come together is prayer for a World Blessing!
