Dèyè mòn gen mòn

Beyond mountains, more mountains.

Haitians use this poetic phrase in two ways: to say that there’s no end to obstacles, and also that there’s no end to opportunities. That pretty much sums up a mountain!

Beaches, waterfalls, cloud forests, and pine tree-capped mountains used to abound in Haiti. Today, 4% of the forests are left, and much of the soil has washed into the sea. And yet, “when one flies over Haiti what one sees is mostly gorgeous, bare-bone mountains.”

One could look out at Haiti’s deforested mountains and see a glass half full. Dèyè mòn gen mòn.
