of Touch

L. B. Mek


These devotedly tender, hands

with fingers 

vibrating in-sync, to your every


reach out, hoping like every time


that, they may yet soothe

your pain

cool, your nightmare past’s

feverish scars

trying to caress, your life’s bruises 

to maybe, eventually

help champion, your recovery’s


Phoenix of triumphant, survival.


If you’d just, choose

to believe-in

what they offer, you

in the name of love.


Untiringly enveloped

in hope’s, patience

They shall ever remain  

reaching out, waiting…

    L.B. this offer, whether from person or nature itself, is a reassuring message to humanity of the goodness in this world and the belief necessary to remain positive to face the next day. A message that is lacking in the news, and social media so focused on the negative. A reinvigorating hope and warming aspiration for the better. So refreshing to hear.

      what a generous reading of my humble effort
      thank you, kind friend
      indeed, our world needs anything that can offer us:
      'A reinvigorating hope and warming aspiration for the better.'

      Hope's patience that is ever reaching out, such a wonderful thought and truth to feast upon and revel in!

      • L. B. Mek

        (oft, it's so hard to glimpse
        those merciful anchors to our everyday life
        so abundant is that sense
        of doom n gloom, all around us
        our steps, whispering
        that cripplingly anxiety, what next?
        it's important, to look around us
        once in a while
        to get a glimpse of those opportunities
        awaiting, upon our jagged path of life...)
        so glad you enjoyed the read dear Poet
        and connected with its hopeful message
        thank you!

          'inked words
          as a soothing balm of poetic essence
          to caress, nourish and reinvigorate us'
          tis why we labour, to stain
          one more barren page
          ain't it, my most cherished Hyung
          thank you!

          This poem is so tenderly and beautifully written dear friend. Hands speak & touch in so many ways, reaching out to convey all that we feel and want to say. They touch the heart in every way.

            (kind hands, do)
            so glad you enjoyed the read, kind Poet

            This was me at one time in life, once again your paintings can touch the senses. Thank you for sharing your wonderful work.

            • L. B. Mek

              sad you can relate
              but glad you enjoyed the read
              again, humbly
              I thank you for your effusive words, kind Poet
