masked beauty (haiga)


Somber geisha
masks each breath,
inner beauty

inner beauty
hidden element in grooming
of a geisha

I too loved this story, although I fell in love with this character in the book; the movie could not include details that allowed the reader to actually feel, taste, smell and hear her inner beauty.



  1. Hello there,
    I wanted to comment on your haiku at carpe diem today, Nov.30th, but didn't fit into the comment box categories.
    You many logs confuse me ;-
    Anyways, I love the two languages side by side. It adds so much to your words.

    1. Wow! can you believe it...I just catching up on comments from this blog since Nov 14! I stopped blogging here 'cause I found my followers at WP weren't seeing my work and got tired of coping them. I wish we could reblog from blogger to WP, then I would have just kept this blog and the one at Tracesofthesoul. I'll figure it out some day:) I love your work...each time I visit your poetry and images just wrap me in awe.


Your visits and comments soothe the soul and my eyes smile, thank you!
Vos visites et commentaires apaise l'âme et mes yeux rigolent, merci!
