Favorite Quote:
"Don't cry that it's over, smile because it has happened."

I have a stray hair
Blowing in the wind
Loping in circles
Dancing in sorrow.
Light like a feather
Heavy like a heart.
Tuck it behind my ear
Feel your fingertips brush against my cheek
I smile
I frown for that one hair
That one hair
That doesn’t fit in.

Once again I love your poetry. You have such a variety; it's literally stunning. And so is this poem. I love the way you compare that piece of hair that doesn't fit in, to the every day life. Simply beautiful. Love it!
