Haiku Challenge day 24

 

Pieces of graphite

Enclosed wooden cylinders

Draw in a spelling bee

 

Bold yellow pencil

Watch me write my way across a page

On ecofriendly hemp

I wonder why we aren’t using Hemp for paper…won’t using Hemp save a lot of trees?

“Hemp is a wood substitute that has a rich history in the paper making industry from paper’s origins in China in the first century AD to the Declaration of Independence, which was written in the 18th century on hemp paper. Hemp is now used to make rope and clothes as well as paper. Unfortunately, it is illegal to grow hemp in the U.S. because it is a non-intoxicating variety of cannabis sativa, the same plant marijuana comes from. For that reason, hemp must be imported for use in the U.S.”..http://ecology.com/features/paperchase/

Here’s a thought.. save trees by growing Hemp!  You can make money, make new jobs and help  people in pain  just by making this legal in Illinois.

Am I wrong..then tell me.

In pink hazy she dances

Joyful with laughter she flutters

Butterflies whisper

  1. No one wishes to invest in what is new. It is always about money, where do we get it, how do we proceed. The politicians are stuck in the details, not that some aren’t looking for solutions.
    I totally enjoyed the last Haiku, very nice!
