Haiku Poem – ハワイの雨

Hawaiian skies
clouds chased by rainbows
drenched in green

(Jim Woodhull)
あめ ばかり みどり の キャンパス にじ が さく

In Hawaii there is no actual rainy season that other countries have but the months of January, February and sometimes even into March can have bad weather for sometimes a few weeks at a time. Usually the winds get very strong and there are usually cloudy rainy days that never seem to end. If the winds come out of the South or West then that means the South side of the island has no kind of water sports at all since it is so rough. I always feel sorry for the tourists when this happens but there are many benefits to this weather. Everything turns a beautiful green color, and there are lots of beautiful rainbows. The rain is of course very important to the farmers and with all of the rain the water here is wonderful. There is almost always an abundance of wonderful tasting fresh water.
