PDA


PDA
©2013 Susan Noyes Anderson


Hands speak volumes, do they not?
One is holding firm and taut,
while the other lies quiescent.
Shouldn't love be effervescent? 

Maybe she is not on board
and hopes that he will feel ignored
if she responds with digits snoring,
proof that her hand finds his boring.

Or perhaps I've judged too soon.
She may think he hung the moon
and want to nestle in his palm,
surrendering without a qualm.

Either way, here is my thought:
(feel free to disagree or not)
Handholding is more profound
with all ten fingers curled around.

both fingers need to curl, for sure. You've got to hold on to what you've got!!

Gail said...

Beautifully said.

Sienna said...

nestle in the palm..... AHHHH

Berowne said...

Insightful and enlightened - well thought-out.

Myrna Foster said...

Love this! It's so true!

Sometimes it's nice just to be at peace with someone you trust, though.

Kathe W. said...

yep- a firm clasp with all 5 digits engaged says a lot.

cj Schlottman said...

I love this, and I agree with the all fingers thing.

Brian Miller said...

Stef said...

I love holding hands! Unfortunately we have to talk with ours so it doesn't happen as much as I wish. Sigh....

Leovi said...

Exquisite, like the moon is knotted between palms. Delicious poem.

izzy said...

Fingertips on palms- whatever it takes!

CB said...

I have to agree! Love is delightful and holding hands is the best!

Helen said...

You can put me in the 'agree' column ... I love this!!!

yaya said...

So sweet! I always say: "Awwwww" when I see old folks walking hand in hand..until I realized I was that "old" folk holding hands..hopefully someone thought we looked "adorably old" and went "Awwww"

You know how to make me smile. It is just contentment. You really have a talent. Sigh. Hopeless romantic in me just melted with this, I hope you know.

Sue, you read the hands very well. Loved this.

Laraine Eddington said...

Sue you are brilliant as usual. Satisfying handholding is an art.

kaykuala said...

There's always a technique in holding hands and there are varieties. Invariably it'll be warm and tender. Nicely Sue!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I totally agree! Love this!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Okay, I REALLY liked this poem! Very well done!

Helena said...

Sue... you never fail to make to go ahhhhhhhh, when the photo(s) fits the words! And that little bit of magic music, too......!♥

EG CameraGirl said...

I think you read hands well.

Little Nell said...

Well your hands certainly had a lot to say, and I agree with their conclusion.

Darlene said...

I love it!! I do agree that all fingers have to be curled around. Interesting that she seems to be more agressive. That would be me, too. I love holding hands, but it has to be tight. This is one of my favorites and it probably took you minutes. At any rate, it's a good one.

mormonmomandhermusic.com said...

Completely agree--gotta have all 10 fingers. Great poem! Just found you and I've been able to read a few of your poems so far and look forward to more!

Vaishali Jain said...

First time here, Sue, and LOVED it. Absolutely loved the way you have worded your thoughts here.

LeAnn said...

Love, love this one! You are brilliant.
Blessings and hugs!

Grandma Honey said...

Ha! That last line caught me by surprise. We should all have someone we can hold hands with like that, all curled around.

zongrik said...

profound hand holding....mmmm

Caroline said...

Exactly!! Fascinating and brilliant, Sue. You are a brilliant writer.

And I agree the best hand holding is the kind that both feel the same: 100% invested! :)
