On Holding Hands

a simple thing, it is
to clasp
and clasp
tangling fingers
in mutual grasp
to caress
and kiss
with fingertips-
the smallest expression
of common affection
“you are mine”, it declares
but even more-
“i am yours”
to connect at the hands…
to connect at the soul

to connect at the hands…
to truly hold hands…
hearts safe between palms
in mutual grasp
