933 - The Mask



Haiku Horizons has the prompt: mask.


The Mask

We all wear a mask.
Few see who we really are—
It is protection


We all wear a mask.
We wear many masks, in fact.
Playing many roles.


We all wear a mask.
Clowns have known the truth for years.
Survival tactic.

  1. Even without physically wearing one we all wear a mask. Funny that one likes not to reveal much of ourselves! Very true Cosmo!

  2. I wish any of my masks were as dramatic, exotic and beautiful as the one pictured.

    We hunt after this
    In seasons that hold ever
    That road used to hope
