Costa Rica, in haiku form

1.
Long drive from airport
Sit in hammock by the sea
A beer in my hand.

2.
Bright colored orchids
Video game-like bird call
coatis gather.

3.
The ocean calls me
Leatherback turtles nest here
Crocodiles lurk.

4.
Float down the river
Herons, egrets, iguanas
Past the sugar cane.

5.
Mountain in the clouds
I wait for a little peek
Just please don’t erupt.

6.
Stray dogs in the road
All the food is so fresh here
Three cows stop traffic.

7.
Cool and dry by coast
Twelve different climates here
Muggy mountain air.

8.
Butterflies fly here
Each ficus has its own wasp
Killer manmade dam.
