Hair hidden
Under wraps and folds,
Twists and braids,
Bright colors, rich textures,
And patterns galore.
No oppression or shame here,
Just freedom
To frame the conversation
To make it about
Revealing one’s true beauty
That comes from within.
For the woman who fears the L-rd,
May she be richly blessed,
And may the glory of Hashem
Rest as a crown
Upon her head.

~This poem was inspired by the beautiful scarves that can be found at and the even more beautiful sister in Messiah who selected them with great care for women who have the desire to cover and let their true beauty be seen.
