Haiku Poem – ワイキキの日の出

exploding colors
herald the sun’s arrival
a new day awaits

(Jim Woodhull)
やける そら ハワイ の あさひ おだやかに

In my boating job one of the regular tours is the sunset tour. Most of the different boat companies have a sunset tour. Of course the sunsets are very beautiful here but our sun rises are also very beautiful. Since it is our fall season now the sun rise is around 6:30 and I think that often the sun rise is even more beautiful than the sunset because of the way the whole horizon seems to be almost on fire! Since I am on the south side of the island I see the sun rising in the Diamond Head area and although I don’t see the actual sun coming up it is the way the sky is lit up that makes it so special for me. The reds and oranges and pinks are very beautiful and they seem to last longer than the sunset. Since the sunrise is later now more people can enjoy it.
