face mask
the eyes reveal
only so much

    I LOVE this haiku. "only so much" is a wonderful expression of two opposite truths, and it seems to me to speak of the power in the small and the hidden, what the eyes reveal of the hidden face so similar to what haiku can reveal of an impossibly large world that can never be distilled into language. Thank you and congratulations on this really exceptional small poem.

    Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words, it means a lot to me. I hadn't thought about the connection of my poem to the haiku form. This is a beautiful observation.

    noon heat
    how long for us yet
    wearing masks
    unlike others having
    it deep within them
