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

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

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

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

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/

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Fire Island Day 21

July 21, 2012


27. Walked with my daughter/
Along a storm cleared seashore/
Contemplating life/

28. Talking and looking/
With people you care about/
Integrates your lives/

29. Watching our dog run/
Frolicking in the breakers/
Ornaments our lives/

30. Inquisitive play/
By a care free consciousness/
Pleases immensely/

31. Speaking of nothing/
Walking along some nowhere/
Creates new meaning/

32. Random moments spent/
Like grains of sand you walk on:/
Messy perfection/
