Haiku Poem – 日が終わる

sinking yellow ball
burning orange night sky
quickly fades to black

(Jim Woodhull)
焼ける空ゆっくり溶けて日が終わる
やける そら ゆっくり とけて ひ が おわる

I am very fortunate in my job that I get to see beautiful sunsets almost every night. Even if it is cloudy and there is not much of a sunset, the sky after the sunset is almost always a beautiful reddish orange color and sometimes a nice pink color. My customers are often more impressed with the sky after the sun sets than the actual sunset!

 私は、仕事のお陰で、ほぼ毎日、夕日の沈む、美しい光景を見ることができます。曇っていて、夕日が、十分、見えなくても、日没後の空は、ほとんどいつも、美しい赤みがかったオレンジ色です。時には、素敵なピンク色です。多くの場合、お客様は、実際の日没よりも、太陽が沈んだ後の空に感銘を受けます。
