Coconuts in My Hair.

We all know that inspiration comes from many places, not least the little ones in our lives! 


I have coconuts in my hair, Mummy.

I didn’t brush and now they’re there.


Fuzzy bundles of fray and wind

Something of bird-nest kind.


Strands of resistance meet follicles of fire

Pull. Twist. Break.


Twine laid down

Smooth and fair.


Gasps of relief at spool-like comb

and coconuts from my hair.
