High Coo – June 26 – Canoe Day

The oldest canoe was discovered in the Netherlands and was carbon-dated to the early Mesolithic period (8040 BC and 7510 BC). See Pesse canoe link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pesse_canoe

I currently live near the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers aka St. Louis, Missouri. The word Missouri reportedly means “those who have dugout canoes” or “those who travel by water.” This area is named after the Missouri native American peoples. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missouri_River

Today’s holiday is Canoe Day and here is a haiku to commemorate it.

Quietly floating,

life can be a peaceful dream.

Go like a river
