I looked at a map of Hawaii last night.
I used to do things like that because I am a geography nerd. But that particular map usually got my attention because I liked dreaming of going there some day.
Some day will be this winter; the dream will be real.
While skimming the map, I learned that there is a part of Maui called Haiku. It just seemed right that someone should write a haiku for Haiku. I wondered if there was anyone more qualified to write Haiku’s haiku than a non-poet who has never been to Hawaii, then decided there wasn’t.
Five minutes after I had the idea, my haiku was complete. I’m proud to present it here for your enjoyment.

Both are called haiku
