The Hands Of Time

As Palm Readers know hands reveal
Just look at the life line
There all is said; a controlled life
'Tis written down in time

As the dish towel washes stains
Dirt 'pon cabinet doors
Placed there by a much larger hand
Hands scrub grease 'pon the floor

Sand through the hour glass flows faster
Time runs out for those hands 
Can fate be changed the last hour
Now hands not held by bands

Uplifting the current flowing
The course sand now stands still 
From a heart of love all 'twas gifted
Not control but love's will

    Sounds like a loved one being freed from the grip of a controlling relationship, a powerful poem Sara, thanks for sharing. Loved the finishing stanzas.

    So far this is shaping up to be a great poem. That larger hand does indeed place dirt so that we can learn how to scrub it up. Certainly interested to see more on this one Sara.
