Haiku Poem – ハワイの晩夏

days grow short
north shore regains its power
autumn is coming

(Jim version)
ながいかげ なみがもどった やはりあき

(Michiko version)
あき ちかし おおなみ もどる ノースショア

Even though it is still just the middle of August, the Autumn season is quietly approaching. It is coming in a very quiet way. The days are slowly getting shorter while the nights slowly get longer. There is a noticeable difference between 6:00 am in the end of August when compared to the end of July. The winds are slowly starting to change and even more noticeable is how the north shore is starting to get a little rougher while the south shore is becoming a little bit more calm. Unless a person has lived in Hawaii a few years it would be hard to see these changes as they are very subtle. It is as if there is a whisper in the air that the autumn season is coming.
