Mask




Broad smile may mask the
Anguish of heart, but eyes tell
Every tale of pain


Arrogance may mask
The emotions churning in heart
Eyes reveal the love

Very true.

Great! Let's listen in French now...

Un grand sourire peut masquer
L'angoisse du cœur, mais les yeux racontent
Tous les contes de la douleur

L'arrogance peut bien mettre un masque
Sur les émotions qui agitent le cœur
Les yeux révèlent l'amour

Interesting contrast between "smile" in the first line of the first haiku and "arrogance" in the first line of the second haiku. There was an echo between the two, playing them off each other.

Even if we wear a mask, our eyes often (but not always) give us away.
