braid battlefield

no cornrows with beads
for her & no threaded hair
but the long coiled twists

those twists are rasta
fingercombed to sleek ripples–
war over, we twist

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    This reminds me of my granddaughters when they were little ones – around 7. Always the question to twist or braid. You haiku brought them back to me. Thank you.
