Summary

I like growing my hair long, a litmus test for those that would too readily judge a book by it's cover. It is a covering that makes all the women jealous with it's thickness, shine and curls. It is currently about shoulder length and ready for another harvest to donate to Locks of Love, an organization that makes wigs for disadvantaged youth suffering long term medical hair loss.

Hair Today
 
For Ma
 
This is my mothers hair
growing wildly from atop
my head. Never needing curlers
or perms, whose ringlets splash freely,
down against my face, growing for ancestral 
honor to a woman of strength and wisdom and to
a line that lived and loved with passion. My curls caress
me like the soothing kisses and warming arms of a mothers love.
 
 
Hairball
 
Don’t judge me by my flowing tresses
or the facial hair of my grandfathers father.
I am not the TV villain or a worthless neer do well.
Get past the cover and open this book. Partake the story.
There is sadness and joy, conflict and pain, an unwritten ending…
a story of love, full and striving to gather in more life and spread its wings.
