Haiku Poem – 花香る

flowers rain down
pink and yellow ground
workday escape

(Scott version)
仕事中内なる平和窓の外
しごとちゅう うちなる へいわ まど の そと

(Michiko version)
昼休み地面を覆う花香る
ひるやすみ じめん を おおう はな かおる

From my office I can see many of Hawaii’s beautiful flowers. Throughout the year there are large flowering trees and little bushes to enjoy. There is a mix of vibrant colors that go from light to dark. When I need to relax at work I look out the window. During certain times of the year, the ground is covered in pink and yellow flowers. Other times, the trees and flowers are just blowing in the wind. Watching the flowers fall give me piece of mind so I can focus on work again.

 私の事務所の窓から、ハワイの美しい花をいくつも見ることができます。一年中、大きな木や地面の茂みに咲き誇る花を楽しむことができます。明るい色から暗い色まで、鮮やかな色が入り混じっています。仕事で一息入れたい時は、窓の外を見ます。ある時は、地面はピンク色と黄色の花で覆われます。他の時には、木々や花々が風に吹かれてなびいています。花が散るのを見ていると、私の心はほぐれます。そして再び、仕事に集中することができます。
