Haiku Poem – ヨットマンと夕日

solitary boat
leaving troubles behind
setting into the sun

(Jim Woodhull)
セーリング ゆうひ に とける ヨットマン

On the sunset tours that I drive the boat on my favorite picture is when there is a sail boat in front of the setting sun or close to it. It is such a peaceful picture and I always wonder what the person or the people on the boat are doing. Are they just out for the sunset tour or are they sailing from one of the other islands or maybe even from another country. It is both a peaceful scene and in a way a lonely scene. Just a sailboat out in the ocean slowly sailing into the sunset. I imagine that the person sailing the boat has left all of their troubles at the dock and they are just enjoying the beautiful sunset and the peace of the ocean.
