Haiku Poem – 四月の鯨

big splashes
farewell from the whales
goodbye for now

(Jim Woodhull)
ふきあげた くじら の ははこ また あおう

The whale watching season is now over in Hawaii. Usually the whale watching tour companies stop their advertising on April 20. Even though there are still whales here they are not enough to have a tour. I had gone about two weeks without seeing any whales and then on the last day of April I saw a Mother and her calf on 3 different tours! It was like the last goodbye from the whales until the end of November!
