Haiku Poem – ハワイの夕日

free light show
spilled orange juice
a soft sigh

Jim version
ためいきや やけている そら また あした

Michiko version
ゆめごこち くもま を そめる らいとしょー

On the end of January I had to work overtime on the shuttle boat as we were having pictures taken of our new Whale watching boat. It was an absolutely perfect night! The sky was clear and the ocean was very calm. When I saw the sun set I knew I had to take a picture because it was so beautiful! In my past Haiku poems I have always first written the poem and when I was satisfied with it I then took a picture to go with it! This time I first took the picture and then thought of a Haiku poem after seeing the picture!

 一月下旬、私は、シャトルボートで残業をしていました。新しいホエール ウォッチング ボートの宣伝写真を撮る為です。その夜は、もの凄く美しい夜でした。空は晴れ渡り、海は非常に穏やかでした。私は、夕日を見た時、俳句ポエムの為に写真を撮らなくては、と思いました。私は、いつも、まず、詩を作り、満足するものが出来た時、それに相応しい写真を撮りました。しかし、今回、私は、最初に写真を撮って、写真を見ながら俳句ポエムを考えました。
