whole hands

his hands above
have sheltered and
shaded reflected the
sun encompassed
the moon whole

his hands around
me been bread fed
me kept me
alive simple
warm whole

his hands inside
me playing piano
with broken chords he
turned up turned
me out whole

and his hands cupped
have caught me as
i fell drop by glisten
fingers coaxing my
arrival whole
