Haiku Poem – 鏡の海

new day begins
the ocean has awoken
a giant mirror

(Jim version)
あき の うみ おおきい かがみ おと が ない

(Michiko version)
うすぐも に ガラス の うみ や あき の あさ

With the arrival of Autumn the ocean on the south side of Oahu is so calm in the morning that it is almost like a giant mirror reflecting the sky. As the day goes on the winds get stronger and there are some small waves but unless there is a storm, the south side in the autumn through the winter is usually very calm, often looking like a giant lake. The morning ocean reflects the sky like a giant mirror.
