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)
見上げれば黄色いシャワー春の花
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!

 冬が終わって、ハワイに春が来る時、色々な気配があります。北の風は、北東の風、または東の風に変わります。時々、南の風、あるいは、南西の風のこともあります。この時期、オアフ島の南のボートツアーは大抵すべてキャンセルされます。また、さまざまな草花が咲きます。私のお気に入りの花は、ゴールデンシャワーの木に咲く花です。2月から3月にかけて咲き、黄色い花が大変美しいです。この木は10メートルから20メートルくらいの高さに成長します。種は有毒です。黄色い花が地面に落ちたあと、木の枝に緑の葉が出ます。その頃、春になり、夏がすぐそこに来ていることが分かります。

美しい黄色い花が咲き、シャワーのように散ります。
