Simplicity Haiku



Campfire heat
Chilly morning sun
Perked coffee


Overhead
Moon in harvest round
Lights the way


Less than more
Simply sufficient
Occam's rule


Hip waders
Fly rod, white water
Saturday

Nice series. I particularly like the third. Simple, direct, and yet opens to so much.

So simply put, but so visual. Beautiful!

Beautiful haiku. I am reminded of the camping trip we recently took; simply sufficient, indeed. We had a campfire in the evening and even a moonlit walk on the shore of the nearby lake.

Those are fine words to describe simplicity. It makes me want to experience each one of them!

One of my favorite memories is back packing in the Blue Ridge mountains (NC) with my son and making real camp style coffee over an open fire in the mornings. Thanks for these. Very well done.

That first one brings me all the way back to scout camp. I can almost smell the earth and grass.
