Witchy Woman

“Witchy Woman”

(The Eagles – Aug 1972

“b” side “Early Bird”)

Witchy Woman

I wonder

can anyone

help me acquire

a broomstick?

Nothing elegant;

I don’t need designer,

simply run-of-the-mill;

till I can get my hair cut

    Laughing Out Loud.

    Presumably after you have your hair cut you will want one in dayglo pink with ‘go Faster’ stripes!!!

    Lots of love

    Thank you David,

    You are forever tempting me! I wonder if dayglo pink will clash with the red stripe in my hair!! LOL 🙂

    Lots of love

    I love this! I’d lend you mine, but a glance in the mirror tells me I should be making an appointment too…

    Ah, terrific Christine! 🙂 In fact, Witchy Woman is just about my favourite Eagles track, the music for this being written by my favourite Eagle Mr Bernie Leadon, who happens to be one helluva guitarist, banjo-player, mandolinist… Great choice, Christine!!! PS The flip side of this single was also co-written by Bernie Leadon…

      Thank you Susan.

      I may have been able to carry off witchy woman look years ago but not anymore lOL 🙂

      I do my best to shine from within most of the time but just now and again I need an external top up! 🙂

    Oooh can I join the broomstick racing too?! I am trying to grow my hair out after cutting it off after my mom died, and it is going through some interesting stages along the way 🙂

      Hi Laurel.

      You are right, growing hair out does indeed involve some “interesting” stages!

      When I was younger I was always chopping and changing between long and short! Now I am quite content to keep it short which is good because my hands don’t work too well so drying and making it look respectable is now a challenge!:)

    Christine, I enjoyed this! (And that Eagles song is also one of my favorites. Was just playing my CD of their greatest hits last night. 🙂 )

    I finally got a much needed haircut last week and retired my old broomstick in favor of a smaller, cuter, shinier, more spring-colored one, thank you very much! You are a real treasure of a hoot, you know that?

      Being “a treasure of a hoot” is a lovely compliment granbee; thank you so much

      Much Love and
      a big slobbery kiss from Jack
      (especially if you have a treat in your hand!!)

    How fun! I do like this song also. Maybe I should join your broomstick group – because of everything that’s been going on the last couple of years, I haven’t had a haircut in a long, long time.

    LOL Ahh this is lovely Christine!
    Make sure you get a turbo charged edition in racing red. They do go faster! *cheeky grin*
    I’d lend you mine but I’m still using it. I confess I cut my hair quite short a few months ago but it didn’t suit me at all! I’m still a long tresses girl and very much looking forward to my hair growing past my shoulders. 🙂
    I hope the haircut leaves you feeling perky and refreshed and ready to embrace the sunshine of spring! 🙂

    with much love and
    (((BIG WARM HUGS))

      Thank you Tikarma!

      There is a big gang of us in broomstick land now! LOL 🙂

      My hair cut will be next week and is long overdue. It always perks me up so looking forward to it.:)

      Love and
      (((BIG WARM HUGS)))

    What a delight!

    Just yesterday I looked into the mirror after being on the computer and writing, etc most of the day…and saw a witchy woman version of myself for sure…think I scared myself a little…

    And I just had my hair done this week…alas, is there no hope?

    As I write this I come into mind of that scene in Bridget Jones’s when she rides in the convertible trying to look like Grace Kelly, but the scarf flies off and her hair is sticking every witch-a-way when she finally gets to the hotel.

    Thanks for sharing a smile!

    Thank you Diane!

    “Alas, is there no hope?” – made me smile :):)

    I didn’t know so many o us would want to ride the broomstick LOL 🙂

    Much Love

    Christine xx

    I love The Eagles – and this poem; small but perfectly formed, and with the wit and honesty that makes your work so much fun to read. (Wish I had enough hair for it ever to GET messy…I don’t have ‘bad hair days’ now, except when I go to the barber’s and he charges me £8, of which about £6 is the search fee…) N.xx

    Love this whimsical poem, also love The Eagles song.

    Thank you Tricia.

    We have quite a few Eagles fans on here! 🙂

    Love and hugs

    Sorry, Christine, but I’m afraid you won’t ever be witchy. You might achieve magic status. You might even ride a broom into the stratosphere and start swatting around the light of stars. But witchy? Don’t think so.

    Thank you Thomas!

    Your comment has put a huge smile on my face. And do I detect a lovely compliment in there somewhere? Well. I am taking it as one anyway! Thank you 🙂

    Happy Poetry Month to me! That was a great poem to find as April begins…now off to polish my broom!

    Oh I soooo identify with this. I know I’m over a relapse when I gather the
    Motivation to make a hair appointment!!

      Thank you so much Jennifer! It’s amazing how much difference a hair do can make 🙂 And after writing this poem lots of people wanted to join me on the broomstick! Lool 🙂 And as we both know, gathering the energy to do it is so good 🙂
