~In Your Palm~

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on December 5, 2011 0 Comments


If I open your hand

to look at your soft, pale, palm

where lines etch the pathways

of your very precious life

what will I find there?

Maybe tiny sunflower seeds

which you can feed to me

one by one or will you

pool clover honey there

for me to gingerly taste

with my hungry tongue?

Perhaps I will discover

a small folded note

lined with lace

and scented with jasmine

as you know I will delight

in such exquisite details

(as with the three simple words

written in plum colored calligraphy:

“All for you”)

Whatever is uncovered

one thing is for sure

after it is gone

my fingertips will trace

the very spot exposed

and finally

my palm will rest

lovingly in yours
