Haiku Poem – ワイキキの静けさ

empty Waikiki
silent boats fill the harbor
waiting for Christmas

(Jim version)
からボート おきゃくさま まつ クリスマス

(Michiko version)
はま しずか クリスマス まつ ボートたち

In Hawaii, one of the busiest seasons is the Christmas holidays. A few days before Christmas it starts to get busy but Christmas day and the week following is the busiest time here. The busy season continues for about a week after New Years and then it starts to slow down with the end of January and February being not so busy. For me, the few weeks before Christmas are very slow. Although in my scuba diving job and submarine job I still have customers there are days when there are no customers at all or very few. It is unfortunate because the ocean is often very calm and the visibility excellent. Waikiki beach is fairly empty and it is possible to get early checki in at the hotel. The price of plane tickets and hotels are often much cheaper at this time.
