One Hand Clapping - Poem by Jack R. Quinn
You can make the sound of two hands clapping.
Now what is the sound of one hand clapping?
The sound of one hand clapping is:
A firm grip of friendship.
A pat of comfort.
The caress of love and caring.
The wave of greeting and goodbye.
A nervous drumming.
A hand wiping away tears of remorse and happiness.
A helping grasp.
A blessing of the newborn, a prayer for the dead.
An act of giving.
A feeling where life is.
