Free hand

I am running out of ways I can note my hand.
Laying it on a scale is hopeless.
Each assay takes me further away 
from what I am searching for. 
Like a forgetting, the space around it
becomes mapless, without orientation.
I am losing my hand 
is my hand lost?
I inquire within over and over.
 I feel like I've just 
entered another room
where I can't recall
why I came into it.
Approaching  Planck
what appears to be form
seems to be dissolving.
Hand appears and disappears,
pouring itself into emptiness.
Until I type this...

Where time was on my wrist
I find a small feed.
Less time, more minding.
Wind is blowing through my palm.
I awaken to a wren tapping
on the back of my hand.
All else is so much foam,
its false iridescence sinking
slowly into the warm waters.
I sight down my arm 
feeling the weather 
climb upon my shoulder.
The feed is like a tune that
holds everything growing.
Whether it be dark pressure
or something green unfolding
what is discrete is 
becoming what I know.
Only the faint outline of
a timepiece remains.
