He knows that to heal

he has to be able to hold all things

in an effortless way.

The sky holds stars with ease,

the sands of all shores

hold sunbathers benevolently,

and please

holds thank you in its hands.

He has to learn

to let himself relax

when he holds a word in his mind

or a proud pencil in his hand.

He knows what’s wrong

will be right

when he holds

by loosening his grasp,

like the land does

when it lets him skip and spring.
