Haiku Poem – ゴールデンシャワーツリー

Spring time is coming
yellow flowers slowly fall
blanket of sunshine

(Jim Woodhull)
みあげれば きいろい シャワー はる の はな

In Hawaii there are different signs that winter is over and that Spring is coming. The winds will change from a straight North wind to a North East or straight East wind. There are also times when the winds will go South to South West which means that on the South side of Oahu all boating operations are usually canceled. Different plants and flowers also bloom. My favorite blooming flower is from the Golden Shower tree. The tree blooms around February and March and I think the yellow flowers are very beautiful. It grows from 10 to 20 meters and its seeds are poisonous. After its yellow flowers fall to the ground they are replaced by green leaves and I know that Spring is here and Summer will soon follow!
