Mask



mask of fear   
cold as biting ice,   
stills the lips   

~0~0

we wear mask     
like thorns of roses,      
weary heart  

0~0

face of faith  
serene river edge,    
one strong rope

    1. I don't think that is a problem. If you don't use mask, you don't see the need for it. For me, that means you are brave to show yourself, a sign of courage, rather than a weakness.

  2. The fear of being judged and unloved makes us wear masks. Very nice set of haiku here Grace.

    MASQUE

    masque de peur
    froid comme la glace qui mord
    apaise les lèvres

    ~0~0

    nous portons des masques
    comme les épines des roses
    cœur las

    0~0

    visage de foi
    rive sereine de rivière
    une corde solide
