A Hand Ring
'I can fashion with my hands, ' he said
an empty space
with which I can then shape
that is round
me of you and I.
draws your smile
a wavy motion
elicits memories of us
spooning on moonlit nights.
I draw an oval
within which we
our love-lined photograph.
I can take your hands
and place them in mine
slipping on your finger
hoping on forever.
You say yes
and my hands
to steady them-
and my happy heart
is now covered with
the one with the ring.
