Denver Stull never took himself, or his haiku, too seriously, adopting a folksy persona and light-hearted subject matter that he was able to publish in virtually every haiku venue available at the time. Wood Chips (Kudzu Press, 1992) is a good sampler of his approach, finding humor in the activities of humans and pathos in the devises of nature equally easily.
