Hiding The Grey (250/365)

2010 09 07 _MG_3255w 
“The departing year:
from my parents I have kept
my grey hair hidden.”

Etsujin (1656?-1739), Japanese poet. Trans. by Bernard Lionel Einbond; unpublished. (Untitled haiku).

TIME:  4:07 PM
PLACE:  Living room

I’ve been covering-up the ever growing, pesky grey roots in my hair for a number of years now.  The events of two weeks ago (Dad and his “memory glitch” - Thanks Dad!) accelerated my regularly scheduled visit to the beauty shop.  My appointment with my hairdresser was at 10am this morning.  One of these days I hope to embrace my sign of aging and let the silver-haired flag fly proudly…today, however, is not that day.
