Wallis and Futuna – Islands


It’s April of 2021 and Day 23 of the A to Z challenge. This year, I am doing the theme – “Travel the World.” I am visiting countries from A to Z and presenting stories with 8 line poems.

Day 23 Country: Wallis and Futuna

Wallis and Futuna is a small country, islands, with around 15k population. It is a territory made up of three main volcanic tropical islands and a number of tiny islets. The original inhabitants built forts and other identifiable structures on the islands, many of which are in ruins, but some of which are still partially intact. Only 5% of the islands’ land area consists of arable land. There are some villages in the islands which do not have telephone and internet connection yet (I personally feel that must be a bliss).

Poem:

In the land of waters,
Sits a monk,
Defining new seasons,
Guarding aspirations.
Let it go,
Let it grow,
Wait and watch,
The monk and his fable.

We think we can do a better job. We think we can handle it well. But some thrive and grow, only when let free.
