hijab: from an uneducated eye

jones beach
the surf is low, the weather fine,
in the mix, sitting at waters edge,
with sons, husbands, daughters,
friends, muslim women
in hijab, loose trousers and tunic,
totally covered, laughing soaking

& in the pool, two young women,
loose trousers & tunic, goggles
over hijab, eye's elegantly made up,
nails superbly manicured, swimming
perfect laps freestyle
