Hands live to caress and love.
Hands live to fight and die.
Forever living hands, forever exploring are hands.

Remarkable hands, storied hands.
Hands, hands can build.
Hands can mold, shape, and speak.
Hands can grasp for the heavens, touch it and believe in the make believers.

Through the fingers thoughts explode as pen touches paper.
Tones and melodies erupt from inner emotions becoming reality.
Heart and soul become one as fingers scrawl quickly, feverishly.
Pounding blood surges through the fingers forcing the pen onward, causing tears to fall from an eye.

Truth flows from the mind; the hand transports it into being.
Embracers of the brush, digits move carefully following intricate lines drawn on canvas.
Colors blend together, vibrant, beautiful, soaring to mosaics of sky and water.
The calming sense of touch slows the scene until order graces the fabric.

Forgotten tilí their lost.
Forgotten until they are crippled, hands are taken for granted for their life giving talent.
Bent and crooked they are silenced from the song they once sang.
Memories now distant are relegated to the wall or museums.
Dusty shelves house the books of the once pulsating, vital, movements that the hand generated.

Hands have saved lives and taken them just as easily.
They create the saviors of life as well as the purveyors of death.
Creating and destroying with a single move a finger can move mountains or search the unknown heavens.

Hands live to caress and love.
Hands live to fight and die.
Forever living hands, forever exploring are hands.

SUCH A POWERFUL READ, BRUCE, AND EVERY WORD IS TRUE: HANDS ARE SO VITAL TO ALL WE DO ON A DAILY BASIS THROUGHOUT LIFE.
WHEN YOU GET A MOMENT, I'D LIKE FOR YOU TO READ MY PIECE ENTITLED: "MAMA'S HANDS". IT WAS WRITTEN IN MEMORY OF MY MOTHER WHO DIED ON JANUARY 31,2008.
ALSO,YOUR POEM, WRITTEN IN MEMORY OF THE SANDY HOOK TRAGEDY, WAS MY MOTIVATION FOR WRITING MY MOST RECENT WORK, "IMAGINE A WORLD". I'D LIKE YOUR COMMENT ON IT.
CONTINUED SUCCESS-

Bruce, I really liked your perspective and insights about HANDS. It resonates with a chapter in my book The First Thirty Seconds. Our hands are literally an extension of our inner person, and they express the intent of our heart! Well done!

WOW - HOW TRUE IT IS THAT WE JUST NEVER REALLY THINK ABOUT IT...WE USE THEM EVERY DAY AND THEY ARE TAKEN FOR GRANTED. THANKS FOR THE REMINDER. BLESSINGS. JOYCE, HIS INSPIRATIONS

Yes, useful hands do a lot and that is the way it should be. Reminding us what all they can do is so experimental and so constructive in this write. What would we do without hands to give us things and do things for us each day and to use to help others. Don't take them for granted no more, just use them to the fullest of their ability each day.

Very imaginative! I never gave much thought to my hands...but I guess they are tremendously important...especially when we are unable to use them as before!
