Haiku Poem – 雲のショー

sunsetting clouds
pour into the mountain side
rivals the sunset

(Jim Woodhull)
サンセット さんみゃく に そそぐ くも の ショー

I have written haikus dealing with the beautiful sunsets in Hawaii and one of the nice things about our sunsets in Hawaii are the beautiful cloud formations that form around the sunset time. One of my favorites is when the clouds almost look like they are falling into the Waianae mountain range. The angle of the boat and the way the sun is setting creates an optical illusion where the clouds seem to be going right into the mountain. Sometimes these scenes are better than the sunset!
