Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Fashion Statement

on April 18, 2020

Fringe hangs over my eyes
Now tickles my nose
Neck just a mess
Coiffures in vogue
Indiscriminate styles
Ever since haircuts became

    You’ve been looking at my latest photo !!!! There are many Facebook friends whose roots are already showing.

    Luckily, I was already growing my hair out of the style I’ve had for the last five years (short layered bob) – a last ditch attempt at long hair again (so I can tie it back/up etc). I’m extra lucky that the outer (on show) part is still (almost) my usual colour – all the grey and silver is underneath: which will – of course – be revealed when I put it up 😀

      I’m growing my hair because that is the natural result of no haircuts. Mine has been short most of my life. My hair had streaks of gray beginning in my mid thirties. Now in my early eighties it is completely silver. The surprise is how wavy my hair is. I’m contemplating wearing it a bit longer when the choice is mine.

        If you were a Hollywood celebrity ( you might be for all I know) then you would be described as Platinum Blonde! It’s strange what hair does if left alone. Mine is so fine that it never would hold a perm for more than a few weeks. If I dry it with the diffuser on the hairdryer, it just falls into the style it was cut, but leave it to dry naturally and there are all sorts of kinks and curls in it, though they drop out when I brush. At least I’m fairly competent at trimming my fringe, which will do for now.

        I used to cut my own hair but that doesn’t work since my vision problem left me with no depth perception. It is interesting that my hair looks different every time I wash it. I agree that hair has a mind if its own.

        Mine currently has the appearance of Medusa’s snakes 😀 Another few weeks of lockdown and it will have become a separate lifeform!!

    Wonderful, Ina! You should link it to Sammi’s prompt!!

  3. I was lucky that I had a haircut literally the week before lockdown so my hair will still be in reasonable shape for a few weeks longer!

      You are fortunate, Andrea. For me one of the interesting things about the confinement is that I like my hair and have decided to try wearing it longer when I can get a haircut to shape it.

    Wearing a ponytail everyday
    Hair tickles my face
    Not allowed to touch face

    Would that be a haiku?

  5. Great little poem. I am having the same struggles here too and can hardly see.

    Thanks, Alison. It is a nuisance to go without regular haircuts.

  7. I don’t cut my hair, but my husband is looking at me to save him from shaggy hair. I’ve been putting it off! I don’t want to make it worse
