(these get better towards the end)
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

33a. Intricate lifestyles/
Embellish simple living/
Past recognition/
#haiku

33b. Intricate lifestyles/
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/

16. Rainy morning starts/
Awareness of nature for/
The introspective/
#haiku

17. The messy weather/
Reminds us most days are fine/
Appreciate those/
#haiku

18. Weather is perfect/
For the planet it is for/
People want too much/
#haiku

19. Interpret nature/
As you might some scripture:/
Find your own meaning/
#haiku

20. Vacation Rain/
Means I must explore inside/
My Mental landscape/
#haiku

21. My introspection/
Illuminates so much more/
Than the physical/
#haiku

22. The material/
Is comfortingly shallow:/
Now explore beneath/
#haiku

23. Create personal/
Scriptural meaning for life:/
Interpret meaning/
#haiku

24. Iconography/
Making personal meanings/
From the natural/
#haiku

25. Don’t rely upon/
Prefabricated visions/
To create meaning/
#haiku

26. Make your own meaning/
Like a bird builds a nice nest/
From broken branches/
#haiku

Artsy Fartsy Signs/
Do nothing about speeding/
“Entitled” selfish cars/

Human “right-of-way”/
Has been discontinued as/
So inconvenient/

1. Imagination:/
The coarse sand in the gears of/
Productivity/
#haiku

2. Manufacturing/
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/
#haiku

So speaketh the gutter, through/
Detritus of Man/
