a few strands

Image symbolic only

sun reflects

shines like a mirror

unfurls the sky

clouds float past

breeze runs

through few strands

flailing helplessly

on the top;

here come the rains

pitter patter

sounds stay

water drops land,

jumping off

flowing down in gay abandon

messing around

few strands all wet and drooping

on glistening brown;

it’s cold and frosty

iced it is

freezing all of it

shimmering white

strands flattened

beyond vision;

hurts beyond measure

open to vagaries of weather

leaving no option but

to reach for the cap

to save the few strands

on the bald pate
