Mask

© Written by Tarang Sinha




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

  3. 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

  4. 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.

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