“I write haiku-like poems while I hike:

Appalachian Trail

Inches wide but miles long

Connecting people

To themselves and each other

As life hastens us, it waits

Thru-hiker hostel

“Rest” is a relative term

Wash, dry, plan, food prep

People who just won’t shut up

Snoring orchestra bunk house

We evolved to walk

Not to sit, drive, stare, or swipe

Efficiency gain?

Relative to time, perhaps

There’s more to time than numbers

Distracted hiker

Typing poems into phone

Smack head on low branch
