at sign of peace hands reached out to
clasp and shake a pact of forgiveness

but things were different back then

now even holy water fonts
hold tiny bouquets of floral adornment
instead of water for dipping a blessing


what are hands for the question asks

of a pandemic world gloved
masked and forever searching

the eyes of beholders
seeking answers
in new normal question-dom
