Haiku Poem – 寛ぎの公園

local joggers
forget their troubles
happy sunset time

(Jim version)
アラモアナ おもい おもい に あそぶ ばしょ

(Michiko version)
あさゆう の くつろぎ の ばしょ アラモアナ

I have written before about Ala Moana Park. In the middle of the busy Waikiki there is the very large and spacious Ala Moana Park. There are so many uses in this park. Different events are held there along with everyday events such as picnics, parties, people exercising or simply going for a walk. Also, families getting together and even people walking their dogs. Even though it is in Waikiki, I would say that the majority of the people using it on a day by day basis are actually local people. Many local people can be seen every day in the morning going for their morning walk or swim and the same goes in the evening. There are some areas where the majority of the people are local because the tourists usually go to the beach or maybe jog around the park. I don’t believe they are familiar with everything the park has to offer.
