Hair

Hair

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

Amazing woman enjoying under stream of big and beautiful cascade waterfall.  Girl with slim fit body and long black hair. Kanto Lampo in Ubud area Stock  Photo - Alamy

Hair
her hair is water falling
Shining black deeps 
tumbling down her back

she tossed her head and laughed 
pointing out her split          ends 
brushing aside my intent

I thought .............. of
fireworks and 
sparklers 
as sunlight hits water on rapid rocks.

The soft edge of her pale palm brushed
against hot, bacon greased pan; 
                       
                         and

singed a distinct brand      -       the
size and shape of a small caterpillar

right there
just     so

She misjudged time and
tender fingers nicked the oven rack and
ever so slightly ..... 

a cooling ... and deceiving 
open oven's door

sizzling burn             instant blister
and hurt gone unscathed
how can such a beauty be?
E.

How can such a beauty be indeed Sir E. A perfect contradiction of perfection and what others would mark down as negatives, but only someone who truly sees beauty can notice split ends and oven burns and still see perfection.
I hide my split ends behind a beanie these days and barely bare my skin in these sub Arctic days... Which is just as well as dating here involves so many layers it more resembles a game of pass the parcel than anything that could even be called lukewarm action.
As ever, always a pleasure to play random roulette on your page, where I have an uncanny ability to hit jackpot most times.

Appreciation of hair, acceptance of imperfections are so realistic in the poet's eyes; all can be fragile and note-worthy. He raises a good question at the end.

Finding the beauty in our imperfections is a sign of love and appreciation. You can find beauty almost anywhere with the right people. The scars become stories or part of their image that attracts you more to them.

Ah, I remember reading this one. I left a review from my old account before it was wiped out by whatever bug took half of WC. I just had to abandon it. It's interesting how the little things in life become beautiful to us. How certain qualities in people; a scar, a way of talking, a laugh can become precious in our mental image of them. I knew a girl once who had a raspy laugh that gave her away in a crowd. She died years ago from cancer but I still remember that laugh. Here. it is the hair that settles on the admirer's heart and a tiny scar. A interesting and intriguing piece of poetry. I enjoyed the read.

"She was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes
And points of her own, sittin' way up high, way up firm and high." Bob Seger from Night Moves

The glory of a woman's hair is a temptation to man, indeed, especially wet and tangled coming from the beach or the bath. And those tiny eccentricities, a laugh, a smile a scar...they plant themselves in memory to go and grow wherever we are. I enjoyed the read, my friend. Excellent verse!

A captivating write and I was transfixed by images of a beautiful woman in water throwing her long her back as you describe leaving everything else in a blur then reality checked in , where water and hot oil don’t mix, the sizzle, the heat, the oven and I thought is this when the postman rings twice with Jessica Lange( what a honey!) Fine writing indeed. What a beauty! Hats off to you.
