Haiku Poem – 椰子の木

palm trees
caress the skyline
hotel oasis

(Jim version)
おどる やし ストレス とける オアフとう 

(Michiko version)
ビル の しま ヤシ の き うたう おお ぶたい

For me, one of the nicest landmarks in the Waikiki area is Ala Moana Park. The park is very big and has a beach that rivals Waikiki beach. In the park is an area called Magic Island. It is called magic because from the air it looks like an island but it is because of the surrounding Ala Wai harbor that it looks like an island. The whole park was originally supposed to be hotels and condominiums in the 1950’s but the company that was going to build it went out of business and the City and County of Honolulu purchased it and decided to make it a park instead. Many TV shows and commercials are shot there and it is a signature for the Waikiki area.
