Waimea Wind Haiku

Published by ERIC KIMURA | Tuesday, May 31, 2011 1:58 AM


I just spent a few days in Waimea where the wind is constant. I learned a Hawaiian proverb about Waimea "Waimea is like a spear rubbed by the wind, as cold spray is blown by the kipuupuu rain"



Chill is the night wind
And shrill is the voice that bears
The lost marchers' chants.

Wind rattles windows
As it howls past the house,
Scouring the land.

My little breeze from
Blanket folding, not the same
As Waimea's wind.
