Haiku Poem – がっかりした観光客

cloudy horizon
greeted by closed signs
maybe next year

(Jim Woodhull)
ツアー ない はいいろ の くも また らいねん

Hawaii has finally started opening up to tourists from the mainland and although I am happy to see them come back I also have been feeling sorry for them. All the tourists that I have been getting on the boat are here for their first time. Many are here for their Honey Moon and also for a regular vacation. They all had images of blue sunny skies every day and all different things that they could do. Unfortunately, as we head into winter, we have not had blue sunny skies for about 1 week. We have had big gray clouds instead and lots of rain. Plus, because of the COVID virus there are many tours and attractions that have not opened up yet. Many hotels are still closed which means the restaurants also. Many of the customers I have talked to have been very disappointed and now can understand why the plane fare is so cheap!
