Haiku Poem – 三本マストの帆船

off in the distance
sailing relic from the past
3 masted schooner

(Jim Woodhull)
でんとうの さんぼん マスト ふなで する

Since I am out on the ocean every day I am able to see many different kinds of boats. There are the usual dive boats, snorkel boats, fishing boats and para sailing boats. Since I am so close to Honolulu harbor I also get to see the big freighters and tug boats come out. Every once in a while there is a special kind of boat that I don’t get to see. Recently a beautiful three masted schooner went by Waikiki. It was a very beautiful sight to see. I realized that at one time those were the only kind of boats to see but now they are a relic from a different time. I hope that someday I have a chance to go on one!
