"It's a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where."
-James Clavell, "Shogun"

The waking sunbeams
Paint our watchful, darkened sphere
Dare we close our eyes?

I love it!!! Such a beatiful haiku! Although it is simply phrased, the wording is powerful and magical. Ironically, it makes you dare to close your eyes and imagine such a skyine! Amazing job!

I thoroughly love the idea of a "painted" skyline-so cool. Great haiku and really impressive. Keep it up!!!!
