44. I wrote for an hour/
Twenty small poems on life/
A keystroke lost them/
#haiku

45. Then I spent an hour/
In the dark woods of Apple/
Fruitlessly trying/
#haiku

46. I am heartbroken/
I lost some of my poems/
And I’m powerless/
#haiku

47. Powerless over/
Things others can simply do/
Makes me feel so weak/

Like children in a playground/
Joyfully and loud/

When the faithful sit calmly/
Expecting nothing/

When the faithful sit calmly/
Expecting something/

Requires acceptance of facts/
Unpalatable/

Another moist paradise/
For our enjoyment/

Cold that dare not speak its name/
Which I must love too/

The flow of living/

Frictionless living’s unreal*/
Burden still exists/
#haiku *unfair

Everything must be done/
By someone someplace/

Made in a hot factory/
By someone who’s hot/

Available to people/
By someone’s labor/
#haiku

Simplicity’s Gratitude/
When life is easy/

It is the only measure/
Of reality/
#haiku

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

Cold and raw with submission/
To human kindness/

A radical luxury/
Stolen from working/
#haiku

All of creation’s beauty/
Still I look outward/

Demands my infinite mind/
Scramble in the mud/
#haiku

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

Reduces spiritual/
Content of living/
#haiku

& the quiet lapping waves/
Alone with my thoughts/
