Tiny Fingers

Post 2: Tiny Fingers 

As I grab 
onto these tiny fingers,
one at a time
to steady all their little wiggles,
my mind wanders to 
a time, a place
far off into the future.
I wonder...
where will these fingers be,
what will they be touching,
who will they become?
Their potential
is awesome,
their path just beginning.
As much as I want to hold onto
these tiny fingers forever...
I know that one day 
they will accomplish


  1. Ahhh, a familiar scene to me!

    Love how you thought about those hands years from now. Beautiful.

    1. Aww. So precious. It takes me back in time, we didn't do any nail painting :) but now I can enjoy my grandchildren's little hands and think about what amazing things they will grow up to do.

  2. Sniffle, sniffle. Great poem today Kim! You are right - those tiny fingers will do amazing things and I can't wait to hear about it! My own tiny fingers painted my toe nails last night...such a sweet sight and lovely memories to hold onto.

  3. A sweet scene for a poetic slice. One to tuck away for upcoming celebrations, I think; I picture re-readings at graduation, wedding, arrival of grandchild....

  4. Awesome, sweet, and inspiring. I love how you captured a simple moment and made it so meaningful.
