Henna

cropped-march16-038.jpg

Everywhere hennaed hair,

young and old and men and girls,

closely cut or luscious curls,

henna here, hennaed hair.

Henna here, hennaed beard,

orange flames on pointy chins,

different shades on different skins,

henna styles in henna worlds

Henna twirls on clapping hands,

hennaed twists on hennaed wrists,

wedding preparations, sacred celebrations,

ancient rites from ancient lands.

Henna paste, fingers dipped,

hennaed nails and finger tips.

On bridal youth or fading hair

henna, henna everywhere.
