Opening Hand

d’Verse¬†Poetics – Can You Give Me A Hand?
Mish at mishunderstoodhas challenged us to write a poem using “hands” as our inspiration.
Opening Hand

she shoved her hand into
a pocket and found she
had nothing to say

her thoughts
were clenched in a fist
sharp ideas dug into her palms

until letter by letter
fingers of words uncurled
she flung them up to the sky

and poems rained down
reached out and waved
farewell to her
