Haiku Poem – ワイキキの日没

multi color skies
Sun walks across water
mountains play

(Scott version)
やける そら うみ を わたって やま あそび
やける そら うみ の かがみ や あま の はら

(Michiko version)
ゆうばえ の くも の あいさつ うける なみ

The sunset from Waikiki beach is very different from the mainland. In the mainland the sun always sets in the same place. However, in Hawaii the sun walks across the ocean. Depending on the season, the sun sets in front of you or behind the mountains. If you’re in Hawaii long enough you can watch the sun walk back and forth. In the summer the sunsets over the waters of Waikiki. The sky changes from Blue to Orange, green, red, and purple. The clouds change from white to red. The water turns dark with orange highlights in the waves. Everyday many people gather to watch the sunset. It never disappoints.
