SERENDIPITY PHOTO PROMPT 2015-7 – HANDS

SERENDIPITY PHOTO STORY PROMPT

WEDNESDAY – 2015 #7

Welcome, again, to Frisbee Wednesday. Today we celebrate … Hump Day, or Middle-Of-The-Week. On this day absolutely ordinary day, we write something about a picture. Or think about it doing it. My picture, your picture, someone else’s picture.

This week’s picture is …

Please try to add your own ping back (links). If you aren’t sure how to do it, put your link in a comment. That works too.

Every Wednesday or until I throw in the towel, I’ll publish a picture and write something about it. If you find my subject and/or my photograph interesting, by all means, extrapolate. Any length is acceptable from a couple of sentences, to a chapter from your upcoming novel.

Please link back to this post so other people can find you. And me.

WHAT ARE a “STORY” AND “PICTURES”?

Story. Words. Poetry, prose, fact, or fiction. A couple of lines, a fanciful tale.

Pictures. Video if that’s your thing. Scanned pictures from your scrap-book. Weird pictures from the internet. Cartoons. Pictures of your family vacation and how the bear stole your food. Any picture plus text. Short or long, truth, fantasy, or fiction. Prose or poetry.

To get notices of these posts, you’ll have to subscribe to Serendipity. I’ll try to title posts so you can easily recognize them.

My effort for this week follows.


 HANDS

Everyone talks about how expressive eyes are — windows to the soul, they say.

Hands are more telling. Just look at the callouses. You can see what work each person has done — or not done — during his or her life.

Hands can be nervous, all motion, darting about like birds. Some of us talk with our hands. Sing with them, pray with them, build with them. Eyes see and reflect, but hands work and play. And make love.

Hands can be folded when a body is at peace. I look for competent hands, hard hands, take charge hands. Knowing hands.

Our destiny is written on our palms, they say. The paths we’ve walked are also there. Join hands to feel a life.

    1. I have, after many years. concluded that elegant hands and gardening don’t go together. Even using gloves, because I can’t use glove all the time. They get in my way. The dirt just embeds in ones fingernails. I like hands that look useful 😉

      1. Palmistry is about character, and as character is destiny it can be accurate. I began as a palmistry and did it professionally for years. Your Palm is interesting as it comes to a conjunction at the base. It be speaks focus, as well as a coming together of fate, life energy, and health.

  1. I can’t miss this. Came back today from Delhi and already start missing my family. Managed to do daily prompt in the late evening and this one will be done tomorrow. I have pictures too. Good night.
