If less is often more, then haiku is one of my favorite ways to practice that happy discipline. I wrote these yesterday afternoon while camping on the Fourth of July.
Fourth of July at Moss Creek Campground
The piney air penetrates
My limbic brain-stem.
Intoxicated On The Fourth
Tipsy on pine air
I decline the wine, and write
Independence On The Little White Salmon
Oh, say can you see
Your way clear to using less
Stuff? Camp. Hike. Talk. Joy.
