Two Simple Questions

Dark-haired women are the best--

We all carry tarot decks,


And a certain smoky magick.

Think about it--

When the end comes,

(and it may, any minute)

Do you really want to be out there with a blonde?

Do you really?

Do you really?

We have witches' houses

Out in the countryside,

Familiars at our feet.

Come in,

Come in,

We may turn you to stone on a whim,

Or strew the winter landscape with lilies if we care to;

Do you dare to

Kiss us and live with the consequences?

Do you?

Do you really?

Makes me want to dye my hair dark!

I have mouse brown hair - neither dark nor blonde.

Does the witch's house have icing and gumdrops?

Wowza!!! This is amazing and wonderful and did you know I've got black hair, you described me so eloquently...LOL :-)

I do live in a magickal tree house with lots of sparly makeup and tarot cards abounding.

I've always thought brunettes were magic...and now I'm certain of it. :)

But what about us with the glints of red?

We are the best! Yep yep!!
What not a blonde with her buttery voice that put one in mind of those shortbread cookies in the blue tin from Finland. I kid, but then you have red hair don't you?
Lovely, honest.
Warm regards,

Yes, love that dark hair! If I had more of mine (my head is shaved) I'd be flinging it around right now. :)

We all have magic. Your brilliant poem certainly has it, Shay.
Cute poem. :) Enjoyed reading it.:)
Kay said…
and what say you of the red head???
Fireblossom said…
Kay, I say....reds are not for the faint of heart. Reds are definitely witches, too. ;-)

Blondes only think they have more fun because someone told them that ... on their own they need help .. she says tossing her once raven tresses

"Reds are not for the faint of heart." Good thing you said that, Chica...I was taking the whip out!

Me encantó este poema, por supuesto.
