Raymond A. Foss Poems
Back to Poems Page
inscribed on the palms of my hand by Raymond A. Foss

He said these word, the creator of the universe
words more than of comfort, that he would remember us
He said he had inscribed our beings, not just our names
ourselves on the palms, the living flesh of the creator
to assure us, he would remember, our lives part of him
living with him, moving with him, more than the words
on the tablets, his love written in the creation
More even than the written within us, on our hearts
we are written on the palms of God’s hands
the hands that make the world,
the hands that molded each one
that set the world to spinning
A promise more real than the bow in the sky
to remind him of another time
when God remembered, forgave
showed compassion on man
this time, inscribed on his palms
