Languid swaying of a physical, bodily manifestation. Rain-shrouded foothills of a small mountain peak; a low step. In the palm of your hand.
How about something to eat? There is meaning to time, both coming and going; a burning hand struck by sharp driving rain.
Hands covering ears; hands that wait. Clasped and enclosing hands, hands placed carefully…a hunting ground. Turn the page and you’re out in the open. Hands opening. Hands forever unfrozen―confessing all, in outward expression.
