Poems and Haiku from Andrea Wachter


Mom you planted the seed.
Wanderlust brought me here.
Gratitude and love.

Bamboo reaches up to the sky
Then curves down and holds us in its arms
Sunlight filters through the feathery leaves.

Bali offering
Clear mind, clear voice and pure heart
Gaia Oasis.

Ocean’s heartbeat all
Through the night. Roosters calling
A new day begins.

Dolphins delight us
Graceful, beautiful with ease
Much to learn from them.

Water blessing at
Mother Temple of Bali
Ancestors visit

Faces and faces
They keep coming and coming
Then my father comes.

–Andrea Wachter
