My open palms


My Screaming Twenties

Here, this is my gift to you;

resting in my open palms.

In the horizontal lines

I hold the moon and all

the promises she has kept for you.

In the creases behind each knuckle

I have buried hope

and in the blue veins

below my thumbs I have housed

the love I have for the way

you smile, laugh and sing.

In the very centre,

nestled in my pink flesh,

is a wish I would like you

to acquaint yourself with,

because I have wished for nothing

but strength, so I may carry you

out of the darkest depths

and never let go or look back

like Orpheus did.

I have wished for nothing

but good, collected it

in order to say:

‘Here, this is my gift to you’

and offer you my open palms

with all the love

I can hold between them.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
