Hair, the brighter light

We have been somewhat behind, but no worries as long as we enjoy ourselves 😀

What follows is in answer to Prompt #8 of The Brighter Light Kid-Adult Poetry Month. Here you can enjoy the picture of the Sparkly Snowflakes team, as they have gathered together like the Three Weird Sisters in the well-known Shakespeare’s play: Just follow the link 

And here is my rendering of Silviya’s reflections.


Both brown and black are chestnut
‘Cause black is chestnut burnt
And brown is like my hair.
Only mine is curly, too.
Just like my mom’s
and like Auntie Cabbage
from the Vegetables’ Song.

Black is shiny like the blouse
my mommy never wears.
Shiny, glossy, smooth
like our kitten’s fur
when I squeeze her
to get some kisses.

Oh, yes, the hair…
It’s beautiful when it’s soft and much.
