Fingers and Palms

Thin but brave bones
bending but seldom
or just sometimes breaking.
With muscles built
for exercise— gripping,
typing, or clenching.
The puzzle of fingers
and palms, I thought
need not completing.

Until my right had
felt your left—
oh, this is what
complete means.

  1. You write every genre with the same amount of finesse and mastery. Even the minutest details are taken care of. I sometimes wonder how you can think of what to write. And every time you come up with amazing things and feelings and situations to write about. Salute!
