My entry for the following poem is:

Haiku 01
expressions of face
happy sad angry frown shy
face is the index

The haiku says that the face is a sign or measure of emotions we feel. Our faces are the palette to the canvas of our minds. The Haiku further enumerates the various range of emotions that humanize us. I would like to continue the Haiku with a a Tanka of my own. A Tanka is a Japanese poem in five lines (5-7-5-7-7) and thirty-one syllables, giving a complete picture of an event or mood.

but when in the world
I wish to poker my face
wonder, trust, disgust
a cryptic game in my mind
a constant portrait of mine
