Haiku Poem – コビッド規制の秋

the crowds are gone
welcome break for Hawaii
Christmas is coming

(Jim Woodhull)
すいている あき が そろそろ ハワイとう

なつ おわり つぎ の かっき は クリスマス

The summer holidays are now over and with the recent tightening of Covid restrictions the tourists in Hawaii have really dropped off. This past September I went to Kona on the island of Hawaii and the plane from Honolulu to Kona was not even half full. The rental cars were not only in abundance they were also discounted. This past summer it was the opposite. Even though I booked my hotel late I got a room right away and even was able to check in at 9:00 in the morning instead of the normal time of 3:00 in the afternoon! The town seemed very quiet as there were not many people there. It will probably stay like this until the Christmas vacations start.
