Haiku Poem – 新型コロナウイルス

empty seats await
silently travels the globe
corona virus

(Jim Woodhull)
くうせき や ウイルス の せい で きゃく が へり

Probably the biggest facing the world at this moment is the Corona virus. Since I work on the submarine and the glass bottom boat I deal with customers from all over the world. Because of this new virus there has been a huge reduction in customers. Last year at this time it was typical to have one 64 passenger submarine and one 48 passenger submarine all day. Now it is just the one 64 passenger submarine and that is usually only half filled. The glass bottom boat has also been affected. Many days tours will be combined since the number of passengers is so low. Unfortunately at this time the virus is just beginning to make its mark in Hawaii and it will be some months before things return to the pre virus time.
