Singing Hands
by Ute Carson
Green Silk Journal, Summer 2022

Press your palms together
and sense the swirling energy.
Lean an ear into a cupped hand
and hear the pulsing heartbeats.
Hold hands with a child
and harken to the singing of its soul.
Clasp hands with a partner
and feel the love.
Take a frail hand in yours
and treasure its tales of life.
Through the melodies of hands,
we come to know each other.
