Age


written on her face
the deep creases of time
her smile is still great

    1. LOL...time will tell! But whatever it is, fear not, the beauty of the heart is ageless. Thank you so much, Hotei, for your comments. :)

  2. The more lines on the face, the little evil in the heart!

    Maybe it is so because time erase all selfishness and give way to the previous step to eternity!

    Hence the great smile.

    So beautiful image you provoke with your natural capability to make unique haiku!

    Thank you, BB!

  10. A smile can change a face. The age we have does not matter, what matters is the love we carry in our hearts.
    Inspiring poetry Balqis. Hope you are well.

  11. I would be lucky if I could see a person like that. All I see is people complaining. They have grown old over the years but not an ounce of wisdom is visible in their eyes or face or rather their minds.

    Even so, your words here put a very graceful picture in front of me. Love your haiku!
    Stay well!
