WHEN A HAND CLOSES

WHEN A HAND CLOSES

when a hand closes
a scar appears
calling out for
the one who knows
to remember

but it forgets
and a storm is formed
then the wind scatters
a hurting world
across the skin

it forgets
and dreams a confusion
where a man mistakes
the art of living with
an act of killing,

then as war breaks out
it collapses down
with exhaustion
slowly beginning
to remember

it hears again
the voice of the loved one
echoing across
the shared gulf
of co-creation

it remembers
a leap of faith
across a chasm
of ever-changing
vastness

and it remembers
the quiet moment
after the eclipse
when a hand opens
to reveal the gift
