Hidden treasure…

a vast blue treasure
hidden in Poseidon’s song –
unlocked by sea shells

Translated to French by Claude Lopez-Ginisty:

Immense trésor bleu
caché dans le chant de Poséidon-
libéré par les coquillages marins

The poetic form involved here is a Haiku. It is Japanese haikai form. It is usually associated with nature. The form is 17 syllables or under, written usually in three lines. In the traditional form, it has a 5-7-5 or a 3-5-3 syllabic format.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
