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.
