My Compass

I wonder when it happened, that her hands became my own... as I watch mother's fingers pointing back to my childhood How could I know, to the last small detail, this intimate connection; were it not for blue veins that flow to my heart?

    This gave me goose bumps, Carrie! I was looking at my own hands today and wondering if they'll look like my mother's one day...
