With These Hands I (15485 bytes)

By J. Kevin Wolfe

With these hands I
have held the most precious
human thing:

a fresh life gasping from
warm maternal waters

a self
realized in the cutting of
a tether

in the starkness of
the gravity-ladden air

From the one comes
the two
the two
ever long to
be one again

About the author:  J. Kevin Wolfe has said of himself: "We're pushing 6 billion poets on this planet. I am just one that stops enacting the poems of life long enough to take notes."
