Haiku Poem – 快適な生活

wide open sky
long silent starry night
sunrise wakes

(Scott Gardner)
ひ が のぼる まど を あければ とり の こえ

For 6 years, when I looked outside I was surrounded by tall buildings and concrete. The sky was nothing but a sliver. When I went to sleep and when I woke up I was greeted by buses and tourists. Waikiki was very tiring. Now, since moving, when I look outside I am greeted by a wide open space. The closest highrise is over 100 meters away. Additionally, I can see a large park, football field, and canal from the lanai.  When I sleep I am greeted by silence. The mornings greet me with a nice sunrise and roosters and birds chirping. When I wake up I am completely refreshed.
