Haiku Poem – 座礁船その後

scarred coral reef
splashing waves eat her deck
ocean bottom waits

(Jim version)
しろさんご きずおう ぎょせん つい の たび

(Michiko version)
あんしょう の しお に あらわれ すみか まつ

On November 13,another article appeared in the Hawaii Star Advertiser, the main paper in Hawaii, concerning the October 14th incident of the fishing boat running aground in front of Waikiki beach. According to the article the Coast Guard hopes to be able to have the fishing boat towed out by the middle of December which is very good news for the Honolulu Aquarium and one of the near by ocean research facilities. The plan calls for the remaining water to be pumped out, the holes patched and then floats to be attached around the boat where it will be towed out and sunk in International waters.
