Panoramic View

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – For Your Consideration – Now See Hair
“What does a strand of hair see?”

I am a wavy lock,
you would be
shocked to see
light the way
I do. You afford
me a panoramic view
of all other strands
as well. Sometimes
I lay curled against
your cheek, and touch
the softness I see.
It’s nice being a long
strand, because the
shorties wind up
next to your ear,
occasionally falling
in. Very waxy in there,
I’m told. I am a wavy
lock, I would be
in shock if you cut
me off.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Yes, what you see depends on where you are. Clever and well done. Hope my reblog works.
