When the Hand Reaches Out / by Nico Lund

December 18, 2014

When the hand reaches out,
Whether to say hello, or
Slap your face "wake up!"
Curse you
Heal 
Explore
Protect you
Push
Inspect you
Hush
Reject you
When the hand reaches out 
To the open water of your heart,

How will you perceive its touch?
