About Life

A Helping Hand

My left hand

has been held

holds

an onion still while I slice it

lifts the kettle

is sometimes stained with pink eczema

presses three fingers to my lips

twists my hair

props my head up when I am tired

scratches backs

strokes

folds laundry

smooths creases

grips a book

changes gears

has short nails

offers you a gift

waves to you…

What does your left hand do?
