Hands can be gentle, kind, violent, creative

I remember my grandfather’s large hands

Callused from wood cutting

Strong, they made me feel safe

Nothing in this world, or the next

I often thought, could ever get past them

Whereas my grandmothers were small and gentle

Featherlight, often times I could hardly feel her touch

There have been a few hands in my life

I would rather not touch again

The wet, spongy kind.

Then we have the great ones,

Mozart at his piano, surgeons saving lives

Some insured for millions like Liberace

Tiny new-born ones are best of all…
