26. I am so boring/
My desires: quotidian/
Just basic comforts/
#haiku

27. Just want my quiet/
And time with my family/
Not so exciting/
#haiku

28. Others’ cluttered lives/
Aren’t attractive to me/
In my solitude/
#haiku

29. Exciting pleasures/
Simply are not int’resting/
As I look inward/
#haiku

30. I explore places/
Where people simply relax/
In this solitude/
#haiku

31. Full throttle living:/
Human’s Spirits’ distractions/
From kind reverie/
#haiku

32a. Enjoy quiet time/
Visit the church* within you/
Knowing there prays G_d/
#haiku *mosque

32b. Enjoy quiet time/
Visit Temple within you/
Knowing there sits G_d/
#haiku

Embellish simple living/
Past recognition/
#haiku

Embellish simple living/
Beyond simple needs/
#haiku

33c. Intricate lifestyles/
Embellish simple living/
Out of existence/
#haiku

35. This contemplation:/
A radical luxury/
Stolen from working/
#haiku

36. Inside my heart lies/
All of creation’s beauty/
Still I look outward/
#haiku

37a. My finite body/
Demands my infinite mind/
Scramble in the mud/
#haiku

37b. My finite body/
Demands my infinite mind/
Busk for company/
#haiku

38. The crowd’s approval/
Reduces spiritual/
Content of living/
#haiku

39. Contemplating life/
& the quiet lapping waves/
Alone with my thoughts/

My Mental landscape/

Now explore beneath/

Scriptural meaning for life:/
Interpret meaning/

Making personal meanings/
From the natural/
#haiku

Prefabricated visions/
To create meaning/

Like a bird builds a nice nest/
From broken branches/

The coarse sand in the gears of/
Productivity/

Is not creating new wealth/
It concentrates/
#haiku

3. Manufacturing/
Does not create anything/
It distills our dreams/
#haiku

4. The “trinkets of ease”/
Spill out of their factories/
To consume our lives/
