Blessing of the Hands (or Lack’s Last Desire)

December 8, 2018



 

May that the hand you out reach,

be filled with the hand of another-

to be lifted in companionable peace.

 

That your other be filled

Overflowing, bountiful

in its generosity,

 

unclenched, loose fingered-

giving unquestioningly,

joy its only petition.

 

May those hands, once emptied-

freed to embrace,

to dry another’s eyes  -fill again,

 

and again, and again.

Pouring out until

lack’s last desire

 

remains,

only,

an embrace.
