Your Hands - Poem by Alison Cassidy

Your hands are always warm,
smooth and good to hold.
Still amazing beautiful too,
despite the scars and spots of age.

Your hands are broad and strong,
with Mount of Venus high
and nails (always manicured)
shaped like fine almonds.

Your hands move confidently,
deftly, like a woman's,
performing mundane tasks
with easy grace and style.

Your hands, some thirteen years ago
in Lygon Street, held mine.
And at that moment, I knew
we belonged together.

    Hello Allie,
    I love hands, too... something ultra masculine, sensual even, about a man's hands and the things they do. I wrote a poem, too, about hands, 'His Hands'. Great minds think alike, huh? I so enjoyed your poem here.

    Wonderful. I suspect that this may be a tribute. It is rare to come across a piece with such a theme, it is rarer still to find one that is written as well as this, Again you do away with sentimentality and place yourself into doing the task of writing about hands. (Report) Reply
