Fire Island Day 7

Thoughts on Work on Vacation

13. Sitting after dawn/
Knowing a day will happen/
Pondering my life/
#haiku

14. I hear birds singing/
Waves continue lapping shore/
Mysterious things/
#haiku

15. Existence I see/
More than I can understand/
Enough to enjoy/
#haiku

16. The work I enjoy/
Is done by other people/
When I vacation/
#haiku

17. Chiaroscuro/
Light from dark application/
Work makes vacation/
#haiku

18. I love my own work/
And its summer cessation/
When I sit and think/
#haiku

19. The dock I sit on/
A rudimentary thing/
Was built by hard work/
#haiku

20. The books I enjoy/
On the life-guarded-beaches/
Are all someone’s work/
#haiku

21. The meals that I cook/
Were farmed, freighted and then sold/
(Other people’s work)/
#haiku

22. I miss my students/
Random classrooms of Egos/
Where I can matter/
#haiku

23. My work defines me/
Although I know it shouldn’t/
I like to matter/
#haiku

24. I like vacation/
Where I have different work/
Like self awareness/
#haiku
