The human hand is meant to grasp.
Designed to reach for, grip or clasp.
They help connect us (me and you).
So many things our hands can do.
A pair of them can applaud, or clap.
Contort your fingers to give a snap.
Unspoken gestures will form signs,
Complex signals to read our minds.
Balled-up knuckles can make a fist.
A wave shows ‘em they’ll be missed.
Fingers count down to signal ‘start’.
A pen-in-hand expresses our heart.
One of the most endearing sights;
A pair of hands with palms upright.
Fingers locked, we all understand.
A parent and child; hand to hand.
