I begin my dive downward, twisting and turning. The wind rushing past me carries the haughty laughs of the barber and a woman’s anticipation. My brother and sister tresses tumble around me. We fall through the air like heavy raindrops from a thick black cloud of deceit. Seven braids in all.
We are not the only things being cruelly released from the sleeping man’s head. The shiny blade also cuts away power, strength and blessing. A lifetime vow is sheared off and falls beside me.
But, I am just a simple lock of hair. I fall downward from Samson’s brow toward Delilah’s lap. As I land gently on the smooth fabric of her robes, the tear falling from my Father’s eye lands on the ground with a splash.
