Poem: “Hands”

The Golden Ratio Revealed in the Structure of Our Hands


by William Lee

Show me what is written

by bleeding hands

not bleeding hearts.

Hands used

Hands callused

Hands strained

Hands that make hay

Hands that pray.

These hands are tied to

a proper heart.

A bleeding heart and bleeding hands

can coincide.

But the bleeding heart without bleeding hands

has its roots in some other wound.
