Travel Haiku - Turkey's Turquoise Coast - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Turkish Mediterranean
i cherish to write a poem
with its turquoise ink

Turkish Mediterranean
agile turquoise blue swings
and tangos with the beach

Turkish Mediterranean
i see something deeper
than your blue eyes

Turkish Mediterranean
the turquoise water spreads
a sea of joy and pleasure

Turkish Mediterranean
the halcyon blue of the sea
absorbs us and all into it

One of the last unspoiled regions of this great sea, the Turkish Mediterranean boasts aquamarine waters relatively free of boat traffic and mountainous shores that contain few posh hotels or high-rise condominiums. The most luxurious way to view this pristine coastline is aboard a chartered gulet, a Turkish wooden yacht, on the legendary Blue Cruise. Your daily itinerary usually includes a swim before breakfast, a visit to Lycian tombs at lunch, and a feast of fresh fish and lobster for dinner.
