haiku (for LeftUnsaid27)

Photo: Phipps Conservatory - September 3, 2006

A masque may disguise

a blushing cheek but it will

not silence a voice.

That is a very creepy picture, but it matches the creepy word which I now relate to Poe's creepy story. Great haiku though.

Wow, Lefty! Sorry if I creeped you out. I thought the planter was funny. Maybe in the context of the whimsical mythical creatures it was more cheerful.

I love that photo! Is it yours?

Thanks, J. Andrew. I took that picture at Phipps Conservatory. I have a spider plant like that which I bought at Phipps, and I am currently looking for a similar planter so I can create the same effect at home.
