Because inspiration strikes in the strangest venues:

I have very tangly hair.

It tangles when it's in a braid;
It tangles when it's in a bun.
It tangles when I go to work;
I tangles when I go have fun.

It tangles when I sleep at night;
It tangles in the bright sunlight.
It tangles in the humid air;
It tangles here and there
and everywhere.

It curls and twirls and whirls around
and grows out and out, not toward the ground.
Bigger and bigger in summer it gets
While I am making weather bets.

But I like my crazy, twirly hair;
Strange I'd be without it there.
So let it dance around itself,
Get fairy knots from errant elves.
Comb and comb but never tame
Whatever comes, I like it all the same.

Thank you. I haven't written regularly for 20 years, but am listening to the muses again.

I like the poem. Would enjoy seeing more of your work.

The closest I ever could get to poetry regarding my hair is:

"I love you wet,
I love you dry,
I love you when
You try to fly
(away)."

You can see why I stick to prose! :cheese:

I like it! It almost seemed like you were describing my hair.

And PetuniaBlossom, your poem made me giggle :)

PB, I like the extra syllable at the end. Mine came out of my tought in this post:

Curly with a combing problem

My hair tangles if you look at it funny. It tangles while in a sleep braid. It tangles while in a bun. (I'm getting a green eggs and ham vibe here, lol.)

:thumbsup: I like the poem, especially the last paragraph. Dance around itself, errant elves. Brilliant!

The "Strange IŽd be without it there" made me laugh, seeing my head bald before my eyes, indeed strange I would be. :o
