Haiku Poem – 海風の歌

burning orange sky
night winds wash the deck
worries melt away

(Jim version)
燃える空夕風笑う踊る船
もえる そら ゆうかぜ わらう おどる ふね

(Michiko version)
さざ波に心を映す夕の船
さざなみ に こころ を うつす ゆう の ふね

For me, when working on the sunset cruise boat tour there is a feeling that is very similar to when taking a walk on the beach during sunset. Even if there is no sunset it still is a very nice feeling walking along the beach with the nice gentle breeze and the sound of the ocean. On the boat it is the same kind of feeling. There is a nice gentle breeze and at times there can be a stronger wind since the boat is off shore and more susceptible to the winds. When I feel the breeze it is as if the ocean is talking to me. It is such a nice feeling looking out over the ocean while the boat is going very slow. All of the day’s problems melt away and if there is a nice sunset then that makes it even better.

 サンセット・クルーズのツアーで働いている時、私は、夕暮れ時の浜辺を散歩しているような気分になります。夕日が見えない時でも、穏やかな風を感じ、海の音を聞きながら海岸沿いを歩くのはとても素敵です。船上にいる時も同じです。心地よい穏やかな風が吹きます。しかし、船は海岸から離れているので、時に強い風を受けやすくなります。私は穏やかな風を頬に感じると、海が私に話しかけているかのように思います。船がゆっくり進んでいる時、海上をはるかに見渡すのは素晴らしい気分です。その日の問題のすべてが溶けてなくなってしまいます。素敵な夕日があれば、さらに素晴らしいです。
