Those hands..



that once held a seedling



cradled tenderly



in your calloused palms


 


those capable hands


whose sensitive fingers



tucked infant rootlings


in the still dark soil


 


hands that soothed....


caressing tender leaves with love and care


nurturing, sheltering...


fingers dancing over its shivering growth


 


Those hands



destroyed


all they had held so close


with one savage twist


 


Coldly ripping ...



the young plant


into myriad tiny pieces of tender green


scattered like confetti over the sterile ground


 


Quiet now...



those hands



clasp together softly


Waiting...


for the new seedling  to emerge
