"My Mother's Hands"
By: Sharon Jordan

My mother's hands, soft and delicate
Once touching the frame of my face
Brushing back the wisps of hair
My mother's hands holding the family
Close together at the table, meals to share
My mother's hands shaping the household
Into a coherent unit functioning daily
No friction, just blessed union and peace
My mother's hands, there to fold in
Thoughts of prayer, to reach up to
The Hands Above, the Hands of Love
My mother's hands, now worn with time
Still holding my devotion, still holding mine


*Similar tin pails available at Michael's for around $5.
