The Fourth In The Forest

By Sunday, July 5, 2009 0 0

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.

Fireworks, begone.

The piney air penetrates

My limbic brain-stem.

Intoxicated On The Fourth

Tipsy on pine air

I decline the wine, and write

Of independence.

Independence On The Little White Salmon

Oh, say can you see

Your way clear to using less

Stuff? Camp. Hike. Talk. Joy.
