i am a hunter memorizing
numbers to hold you down –
the days i knew
you, the times we
held hands, the last
year i saw you, and
the second it all
began to decay
Something about these hands–well, they’re distrubing.
What I like about these hands is they appear covered with leaves. I see them as a symbol of “turning over a new leaf”.
oh, what a lovely thought!
These are amazing! They look very realistic and from what I can tell, they both look like they have a ring on the “ring finger.” I like Leslie’s interpretation and offer a couple more:
Nature as a cover / provider for us
Us holding up and supporting nature
I also like your poem. When matched with the picture, it makes for a hunting picture as it seems you are talking about a human but you add the “second it all began to decay” which the cut off hands (whether in human or leaf form) would do.
that was supposed to be “it makes for a haunting picture” not “hunting” picture
thank you so much for your thoughtful comments! (smile)
