New Series: "Hart's Farm"

The freebie poem "Welcome to Hart's Farm" inspired more prompts, leading to a second poem.

"In the Palms of My Hands" is a free-verse poem about Arnvid the carpenter and his work, his little girl Astrid, and some of his lovers. It's essentially his view of the same day described in "Welcome to Hart's Farm" only this time in first-person present tense. I used 'sunlight' and 'hands' throughout the poem as connecting metaphors for life and community.
