Travel Haiku - Honduras' Banana Shaped Roatan Island - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Roatan
going bananas
on banana island

roatan island
my cigarrette smoke trails
over the dolphin jumps

roatan island
they told me to enjoy
doing nothing

roatan island
his strokes on the canvas
more breathtaking than waves

Honduras
January 6,2007: Roatán, a 40-mile-long banana-shaped island off the Honduran coast, rests in the azure waters of the Caribbean, with some of the world's best scuba diving and snorkeling. But no one will fault you if you decide to laze on one of the island's many pristine beaches and perfect the art of doing nothing at all.
