Haiku Poem – 秦野の富士山

my morning routine
searching through the morning light
ahh my Fuji san!

(Jim version)
にもつつむ みえるでしょうか ああふじさん

(Kiko version)
あつきひに こかげ に はいり ふじあおぐ

(Shuzo version)
ふじさんを きょうも みたくて いえをでる

One of my favorite memories of living and working in Hadano was that when driving in the morning I could often see Fuji san! I was so very lucky! So many people come from from very far away countries to get a glimpse of one of the most recognizable mountains in the world and I often got to see it going from my house to the store! To me it is the perfect shape and in the winter with the snow on the top it looks so amazing! I have seen Fuji san hundreds of times and yet that sight never gets old! For me when I got to see it on my way to work I always thought that it was like a sign of good luck for the day. When customers came in we would always ask if they saw Fuji san! That is something that I miss very much in Hawaii.
