lost and found – the distance

I held her hands

and filed the cracks

where her nails had chipped

like china

her  fingers bonsai

with a curl of gold band

and absently she played

a quiet love of yesterday

she held her aged palms

out to me

and showed me secret maps

lined in her palms

her treasures

she told me


its all yours

there for the taking

I hold my mothers hand
