I am in love with your hands -
fingertip to fingertip with mine
or more often in motion:
adding accents to your words;
giving shape to your hair;
drawing sensation from my skin.
I am in love with your
fingertips
that write endearments between my shoulder blades
draw a heart above my heart
touch and trace and tease.
I love your fingers
in all their strength and quickness
the way they reach for my center
and find my voice.
We tell stories, your fingers and I
primal, preverbal tales
of love, of power.
In these and uncountable other ways
I am in love with your hands.


******************************

I'm kind of curious what people see in this... to me it's very simple, but I think there might be some nuances that are less visible to others.

I do like this one. I think I might end up with a small collection of poetry featuring hands... and this piece is definitely a cousin to this one.

Also, if you think this might be about you... you're probably at least partly right... ;)
