so much depends

so much depends

A Poem by E S Stevens
"

This piece was inspired by and heavily borrows from William Carlos Williams' "The Red Wheelbarrow."

"

so much depends

upon


a red wheel

barrow


but so much depends

upon the hands that move it


soft, comforting hands, loving hands

offering embrace, a soul soothing hug


rough calloused hands, intimidating hands

promising work and sweat from the brow


no two hands the same

but all hands offering something


in a world glazed with

rain water


so much depends
