Reply Maggie Grace says: July 17, 2013 at 7:00 pm Thank you for saying what I could find no words to say. You did this eloquently. Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: July 18, 2013 at 4:41 am It was a difficult prompt. Thank you. Reply Sigrid Gerstner Stevens Saradunn says: July 17, 2013 at 10:15 pm Excellent. Peace Siggi Reply jrbsays says: July 18, 2013 at 5:04 am I agree, wonderfully done Mark! Fashion Prisoner Reply 4joyjoanne says: July 18, 2013 at 6:30 am yes, a difficult prompt, but you perfectly paraphrased ‘beauty’s only skin deep’ Reply WabiSabi says: July 18, 2013 at 11:03 am Ah…. this is a perfect response to the prompt. However, my response to your poem is : gentleness shining in his eyes out in the open Reply Björn Rudberg (brudberg) says: July 18, 2013 at 11:07 am This nailed the prompt… Sometimes the more difficult prompts generates the best haiku Reply Spadoman says: July 19, 2013 at 3:59 am It could, and maybe should be, a guideline for our own lives. We never really know what is inside of anyone but ourselves. What we see on the surface isn’t what it seems, or might not be. I get the point. You teach well with your words. Peace Reply judie says: July 19, 2013 at 4:15 am wonderful contradiction lesson. Too many people don’t look beyond their immediate vision.

Enlightening!! Reply magicalmysticalteacher says: July 19, 2013 at 6:55 am I’m guilty! Too often my first impression of someone is based on appearances. Barbs of Loneliness Reply rebecca says: July 19, 2013 at 7:56 am yes, what is important is invisible to the eye. it is only with the heart that we see clearly. great haiku reminder! Reply readinpleasure says: July 19, 2013 at 8:38 am And this, is the essence of inner beauty, Mark. Beautiful 🙂 Reply gemma says: July 19, 2013 at 8:43 am It’s never about the packaging, the real goods are inside. Reply Nonnie says: July 19, 2013 at 9:02 am your words paint such vivid images! Reply Karen, Something Written says: July 19, 2013 at 9:06 am It is what’s inside that counts. All to often we make assumptions based on the superficial. Reply WabiSabi says: July 19, 2013 at 6:19 pm Second reading….still love it!! Haiku My Heart Hot, Hot, Hot Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: July 19, 2013 at 7:39 pm I knew I could count on a kind word the second time around! Thank you! Reply J says: October 13, 2014 at 6:21 pm “never judge a book by its cover” — or a human by their face and/or body — Great response to the prompt!
