Haiku Poem – 空で浮く虹

multicolored ark
floating majestically
symbol of Hawaii

(Jim Woodhull)
空で浮くハワイのシンボル笑い顔
そら で うく ハワイ の シンボル わらい がお

The rainbow is a very famous symbol of Hawaii since it is such a common sight here. In the winter one is much more likely to see a rainbow since there is more rainfall, especially in the morning and evening around sunset. The summer also is a time for seeing rainbows since it often rains up by the mountains. In the early evening rainbows often appear in the Waikiki and Diamond head area. When seen from a boat, the rainbow often looks like it is above a certain hotel or area and it makes for a very nice picture.

 ハワイでは、しょっちゅう虹を見ることができます。虹は、ハワイの有名な象徴(シンボル)です。冬は、夜明けや夕暮れに雨が降ることが多いので、虹の見える可能性がはるかに高くなります。夏は山のそばで雨が降ることが多いので、虹を見る機会があります。夕方になると、虹がワイキキやダイヤモンドヘッド辺りに現れることがよくあります。船の上から見ると、虹はホテルや特別な場所の上にあるように見えることが多く、とても良い写真を撮ることができます。
