One Open Hand – NaPoWriMo


One Open Hand,
Extending out into the Starkness,
Opens Light
That Shimmers Bright,
Chasing Away Darkness.

One Open Hand,
Reaching Forward to Freely Give,
Bears Hope,
That Helps Souls Cope,
Making Life Easier to Live.

One Open Hand,
Offering With Bounty Unfurled,
Dries Tears,
Wipes Away Fears,
And Gently Changes the World.

    1. šŸ™‚ Thanks as Ever, Line šŸ˜‰ I was quite delighted with it the way it turned out. Then I found the picture and though OH OH OH thats perfect. then, after I loaded the picture and set up the post, I looked at it again and though HEY!!! I can put the poem right onto there šŸ™‚ LOL See…now You’ve had a window into how my mind works lOL


  1. no no… not the open hand:( In India, the open hand is the symbol of the Congress Party, which is the ruling party. We have elections these days, and we say that the Open Hand is the Hand that takes (money) and takes(money) and takes….
    I like the poem, though!


  2. the late night walk, the tension inside, a strangers voice, and then a smile, and all your fears disappear, it’s amazing how one good act, can change the life of everyone, just encountered a moment just like that, makes you think, great post, turning fear into love, priceless


    1. šŸ™‚ thanks Ever so šŸ™‚ You are so right…people often think OH I cant do anything to change the world..but they forget that each act of Kindness, each offering of generosity makes a lasting effect.

      Blessings of Peace and Joy~


      1. Just watching over Family living in the Stormy&Tornado areas. Blessed we are, only property damage, non-major. So so blessed. hearts go out to others, who weren’t so blessed.(((


      2. I understand why my oldest Kids decided to return to Germany to live, slowly it just unnerved them with the extremes of weather in the US. I don’t have to agree, but respect their decisions. Until Daughter had child, didn’t bother me as much, now is suddenly different. Gives me excuse to fly across the pond, I suppose.)))))))))


  3. This looks like a special message about the Earth and taking kindness and caring to others out there! By reaching out with One Open Hand, your list of gifts are beautiful to give to others! You are a light to us all!
