Coffee picking Easter 2008

Walking down to pick coffee – foto Smith

Lady and I spent Easter 2008 high in the Sierra Madre Mountains in the village of Tanteze in southern Mexico picking coffee for a weekend with a Zapatec couple. It was our second coffee picking experience with them and just as magic as the first.

Here are five haiku/senryu from that adventure and a bunch of fotos.

Easter Mountain, Mexico

Rooster crows, bird coos
Sun rises up mountain side
Daily pain begins

Cat claws in my knee
Demands attention from me
Good to be wanted

Country to country
All things change yet stay the same
I remain other

Laugh, touch, cling, hug, hold
People clasp people to heart
I watch from shadow

Outside the fire’s flame
In this dark encroaching cold
I hold my wife, warm

— Smith, 2008
