Tranquility Inspired Haikus

Here’s a note from the photographer/poet: “I took this picture 10 years ago (January 2013) while on vacation in my native Haiti; That’s what our winters look like. The picture fixes in time a moment of tranquility and stillness. To me, it’s a reminder to remain calm and anchored in the face of daily challenges. It inspired me to write some Haikus”

Unceasing flow of

Sapphire undulations-

Pause for a moment.

Be free from chatter

Like this sunbathing dinghy,

Trusting its anchor.

Winter in Haiti-

A dinghy unphased by waves:

Pure tranquility.

This pairing of image and poem worked perfectly, each complimenting the other competing. Reading and looking creates a restful moment.
