Mask (HH 05/12–3 haiku)

Mask

Mask (Photo credit: poropitia outside the box)

perfect little thief
wears his bandit mask always–
rascally raccoon.

***

don’t look too closely
her smooth features disguise pain
brittle, pretty mask

***
free from my true face
the mask I wore blows away
lighter  now, and free

which is free,
the face or the mask?
perhaps both

  10. Wonderful set of haiku. As Grace mentioned in her comment. I especially liked the last one. Leaving us with a question.

    • Thank you so much–I loved it, and wanted to capture the feeling of another poem I wrote on here (not a haiku) that captured the same feeling. Glad you liked it.
