    1. Whoops! I had both yours and Kellie’s window open and I posted this on the wrong one! Sorry. šŸ˜¦

      What I meant to say here is you have done a wonderful job of describing how hard a life this man must have had through his hands.

    very powerful. Hands do tell the stories of a lifetime. You have inspired me to try and do another FWF. Haven’t done one for ages.

  2. Beautiful Work! I have always had a fascination with hands and study them on people that I meet for the first time and even subsequently. They do tell their story. I always knew in my heart that I would find my right partner when I found the right hands. I was continually looking for these very specific hands. I finally found the hands and the man attached to them 12 years ago. šŸ™‚

    1. Thank you very much! Poetry is still a bit new to me; it is a wonderful way to hone my skill with word choice. I know what you mean about hands. My fiance’s hands are a beautiful expression of who he is- a tender heart with a gentle soul. When he is not near, I often conjure up the image of them!

    “Line with the Pain and the Prison of His Life,” love that line. It’s such a true feeling to sometimes look at our hands and think of the prison that we live in, by our own creation, or by circumstance, such a powerful image.
