Mask Haiku Challenge

What's a Haiku? 
Haiku is a three line poem, written in a 5-7-5 syllable count. The first line contains 5 syllables, the second line is 7, and the third is 5. It is usually about a moment in time, in nature, in feeling. A few of the masters: Bashō, Kobayashi Issa and Buson can help give an idea of haiku. 

Jack Kerouac wrote:

The bottoms of my shoes 
     are clean 
From walking in the rain

Why the Mask Haiku Challenge?
