HAND BASKET - Basket&Poem

Her hand is extended to you

She opens my heart to you, too

She wants only to give and to take

To life clinging for its own sake

My fingers within. It’s an art!

Like the almond upon my heart.

I sail through the stormiest seas

While grasping the soil, grass and trees.

 

Like a palm frond spread out and extending itself to the world, a hand is wide open and stretched out in peace, presenting what is in our hearts.

It takes out its wares to present them, to experience sensation, to give and take.

Hands have a vast field of motion but constitute a component of something greater, the body, that accords it place and stability. Here, we have a grasping handle and a spiral decoration, made of the same material and of uniform texture, yet constituting an external, separate and autonomous decoration.
