Hands and Heart
Generous hands hold this warming cup,
hold warmth for my heart,
hold space for my words,
hold the weight of achy necks and hips
until they release to be held by the earth.
Grateful hands reach from grateful arms
wearing mala beads, offering dharma prayers
released from an open, grateful heart
touched by turquoise protection
and healing warmth,
like the warming cup held by generous hands.
These gifted hands.
My grateful heart.
