Beauty Of Haiti Poem by Ana Monnar

Beauty Of Haiti

Rating: 5.0

Silk and ribbons clouding the sky
Coastline and beaches – pure black sand
Walking, skipping, splash-splash snorkeling
Good, honest people – giving hand

Flawless beaches, nature walks too
Mountains and forests, trees and shrubs
Rugged valleys, crystal clear bays
Gifts of wisdom from the cherubs

Visitors welcomed to Haiti
Echoes of Africa airing
Panoramic view of realm
Haitian Saints singing and working

Beauty of Haiti is dancing
With the rainbow’s pastel colors
Different shades to please the Heavens
Family, good friends and neighbors

Rich – poor; “Where is the middle class? ”
Flesh clings tenaciously to mom
Creole speaking, dining delight
Tourist and rich folks under palm

Midnight blue sky, shimmering lights
Stars shining brightly upon moon
Happiness, sadness and sorrow
Hoping to see their loved ones soon

Poor human beings – young and old
Stomach growling, eyes tell it all
Sincerity, dignity, poise
Beauty of Haiti is for all
