beneath, frantic feet

    • Thank you, Jingle :))

  2. a haiku can speak a lot, can’t it? it speaks to me of hidden sorrows beneath a placid face that masks it all. loved it!

    Here’s My Potluck

    • Hidden sorrows, struggles…that’s absolutely what I was writing about :) Thank you, Vinay!

  3. A big story behind those words. We can’t wail all the time no matter how much we are bleeeeeeding inside. I surprised myself too when I was able to be poised back then… :)

    • :)) I suppose it’s a good thing we can’t wail all the time, it would be very tiring for the body and everyone in the vicinity.

  4. keep it up.
