Haiku Poem – 空で浮く虹

multicolored ark
floating majestically
symbol of Hawaii

(Jim Woodhull)
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.
