SACRED FLOW ARTS: Balancing Body, Mind, and Spirit

Musings

Uncut

At fifty I’ve decided to let my hair grow
free and wild, no longer tamed
by society’s standards, uncolored
and uncut to my hips, 

a trail of silver strands
marking my presence in places
they should no longer linger-- 

shut in car doors, sat on in church, 
floating unseen on the back
of a young man’s shirt
like a lover
