The box enfolds a flaxen curl
and azure slides to style a girl,
organza ribbons pertly tied
-- forgotten memories unfurl …
her teenage topknot clasps a whorl
of mousy locks, she’d chestnut-dyed.
Now sable’s cursed with silver glints
… adeptly glossed with golden tints.
------- Author's Notes -------
I wrote this when sorting through my mother's things and I found a box with a fair curl and 2 blue slides that she's kept since I was a little girl.

I found a lot of memories going through Mum's things that will eventually end up in poems.
