Haiku non sequiturs

Saint Andrew’s in on the Bay of Fundy, which has about the highest tides in the world, which suggested this painting for this haiku.

The middle line, makes sense tidal power to the grid: Marine currents, unlike many other forms of renewable energy, are a consistent source of kinetic energy because of regular tidal cycles influenced by the phases of the moon. Unlike wind, wave and solar power, intermittency is not a problem, so tidal power can be a reliable input to the electricity grid.

But, as with most of my haiku, where the lines really are randomly selected and grouped, the end result is kind of a non sequitur. Eventually I will try to make sense of these non sequiturs…
