In Praise of Holding Hands

In Praise of Holding Hands

We sense intent
in a newborn’s grasp…
surprising strength…
instinctive…reaching out
for confirmation
of humanity.

So begin
synaptic pathways
for mindfulness of touch… 
summoned remembrance
from deep realms of feeling…
lingering and sensate…
of those whose hands
we have truly held.
