Masked Feelings

Reminders of Venice, mnemonic of undying love of Romeo and Juliet, Were masks a barrier for two lovers, when encountered each other?  Elaborate masks concealed the identities,  Without hindrance, love bloomed no matter.  Masks are mysterious, masks are enigmatic, masks were fashion.  Imagine extravagant costume balls in the time of Shakespeare,  envision the exciting Venice carnivals! if masks didn't exist, would the fascinating drama touch people’s hearts for hundreds of years?   Honestly, masks are not my most favourite item!  But enigmatic masks can be turned into delightful accessories!  With a little bit of imagination, and a little bit of fun,  Masks save lives, still emanate a romantic charm!  Kathakali dancers! Masks are inseparable pieces of Epic story plays,  The expressions come alive through intricately designed masks, Blend of music, epic, story and art -  All coming together! In a captivating platter!  Venice, or Kerala, masks are complex, masks are enchanting!  Make it vibrantly colourful, create one undeniably your own, model it fervently artistic!  July 24, 2020

Masks unmasked in a Shakespearean carnival of words and images! This is quite delightful. If it is for the contest, good luck!
