To Touch – v2 by Raymond A. Foss

More than the others
senses of our bodies
more than sight, taste
more than our hearing, our sense of smell
all of these tied to memory
to our place in the world
yet touch so much more
how we live, how we love
how we relate to one another

Our bodies, our clay
the importance of one
to touch, to reach, to change
to lovingly touch our neighbors
loved ones and strangers
all drawn to our touch
to the connection, one to another
to the tactile sense of belonging
only in our touch

The sense of our creator
the potter molding us
true relationship with our savior
all in the organ of our skin
the sensation, the nerves
each one alive, changed forever
when another brushes
caresses, makes connection
through our sense of touch
