Camp Haiku

These are actually from last summer. I don’t really remember what inspired me to write them, but I did. Right before I camp to camp last summer, I went on a camping trip with my cousins to all the Utah National Parks and to the Grand Canyon. We sped some time writing hiakus there, so that is probably where the format came from. Most of these are a little biased towards FA, but some work for both IA and FA. Enjoy!

Tall pine sentinels
High above the Saco Stand
Guarding FA girls

On the cabin line
Sounds of happy campers rise
Full of camp spirit

Round the campfire sit
In song and meditation
Sunset closed the day

Stars above pass by
The night sky glows watchfully
Courts and fields silent

Birds above warble
Mix with childrens cheers below
One more day goes by
