The first hands

The first hands to touch me were a woman’s, a midwife’s. Then my mother’s.

Years later after good and bad and right and wrong the touch I had always needed and waited for finally arrived.

Now the thought of your touch still sparks the stars beneath my skin. The stars still spark.
