we walk all day
into the future

    In this day of rapid climate change and the realization of its causes, this is a very meaningful juxtaposition and a potent challenge to the manufacturers of progress. But they are not listening, alas. Witness the total lack of discussion of the environment in the current American Presidential race.

    Joan. A wonderful haiku! I love the idea of a walk in the desert and a walk into the future. So many ways to read this.

    I love the subtle contrast embedded in this haiku…advancing in the midst of obscurity. Perhaps hard times lie our moment of glory.

    I like the hint of impermanence and timelessness that is so well-stated in this verse.

    A thought-provoking and enjoyable read!
