Fighting the Age Battle

Although I vowed it wouldn’t happen,
Age is creeping up on me.
All my friends are now great-grandmas.
I don’t know how that can be.

My beautician and I decided
To stop coloring my hair.
We had both of us forgotten
What shade was hiding under there.

Imagine her excitement
And indeed my great dismay
That what ever hue had been there
Had completely gone away.  

Now my friends are sympathetic.
They think I must have had a fright,
And it was so terrifying
It turned my hair white over night.

Joyce,  you are wonderful.  I can't tell you how many times you (and your poetry) have made me smile.  Thank you for sharing your poetic gift.

Love,
Alison

Totally awesome, dear Joyce! Thank you for the smiles. I decided a year ago to let my hair be natural ... and I love it now. Just today a friend who visited saw me for the first time "in white" and after the first moment of surprise she found it looks good on me, but feared it would look bad on her ...

Hugs.
