hands (n).


You can tell if it is true love by bringing your attention to your hands: Love is not to be held with a fist, no clinging or desperate grasping. It is in the fingertips gently brushing along spine and hips; it is the tracing of your partner's lips in the grey hue of dawn; it is in the reaching for the extra grocery bag to lighten the load on the way home; it is in their brushing of your hair out of your eyes; it is in the joining of your partner's hands in thunderous applause as you go off about your day.
