Hands


Bitten to the tender quick
concave convex curves
torn straight
unable to spring back;
forever branded -
a scarlet letter.

Looks like some cool drumming going on! I like your verse; it just begs to be read more than once. Very nice indeed!

I love the sound of drumming ... I can hear it through the hands.

Thrum, thrum...couldn't get "Little Drummer Boy" out of my head after seeing this! Thanks a lot! ;-))

Your hand series gets better and better. I think these are my favorites but I say that each time!

Hands up, hands down, your hand series is top-drawer, Julie.

Different poses, different backgrounds. Love the first shot at rest.
