A lovely facade
 windows and doors all shut tight
  trapped ~ inside her mind

  2. Since I'm lucky enough to think of mine as a palace, I forget those trapped in a prison. Thought provoking little haiku.

  4. I don't like to read the other comments, before I make mine, but I accidently read the first one, and yes, I do think the mind can be a prison. I like the way you poised the question.

  5. A powerful metaphor, your interpretation and style are profoundly beautiful. Indeed, aren't we all prisoners to the self?

  6. You can't always tell from the outside, what's going on inside. Good Magpie.

  7. Trapped inside my mind
    I could not abide. Good one, short and meaningful.

  8. I like to think a palace. It looks tranquil. However, every palace can become a prison given the circumstances. A good question.

  9. I often wonder what goes on inside my mind, but my house is most definitely a palace, inside and out.
