20. Choppy waves below/
Lap insistently under/
Low grey clouds above/
#haiku

21. Cold grey sunrise starts/
Another moist paradise/
For our enjoyment/
#haiku

22. Not appropriate/
For vacation photographs/
But still important/
#haiku

23. Vacation includes/
Cold that dare not speak its name/
Which I must love too/
#haiku

24. Life is not constant/
Comfort or pleasure for us*/
Savor discomfort/
#haiku *Man

25. Discomfort gives us/
Awareness of simple life/
Which is all we have/
#haiku

26. Constant comfort numbs/
Living beings into “selfs:”/
Individuals/
#haiku

27. Individuals:/
People disconnected from/
The flow of living/
#haiku

28. Constant convenience:/
Frictionless living’s unreal*/
Burden still exists/
#haiku *unfair

29. In this universe/
Everything must be done/
By someone someplace/
#haiku

30. The fan that cools you/
Made in a hot factory/
By someone who’s hot/
#haiku

31. Convenience is made/
Available to people/
By someone’s labor/
#haiku

32. Remember to show/
Simplicity’s Gratitude/
When life is easy/
#haiku

33. Enjoy life’s friction/
It is the only measure/
Of reality/
#haiku

34. Cold fingers can hold/
More human reality/
Because of their will/
#haiku

35. Grab life with fingers/
Cold and raw with submission/
To human kindness/
#haiku
