Waipahu Hongwanji

          Buddhist Temple

 



        On May 2, 2015, temple members participated in our inaugural Tsukimi or Moon Viewing.   Amid clear skies and a bright, full moon, we ate, drank, talked stories, sang songs, and had a real good time.  Below are samples of poems written by people inspired by the full moon:


            “See the full moon shine,

              Reflections of kind faces,

              Harmony prevails” ....   Jenny


“With the shrill voices of singing,

The moon sneaks through the eastern sky,

People gather round the telescope,

To see the rabbit pounding mochi”

                                                ..... Helene


            “I saw a golden moon,

            Bright, golden, yellow,

            It made my night so sublime,

            Fulfilled and mellow” .... Helen


            “Full moon enchanting,

            Imagination runs wild,

            To lover’s delight” .... Gary


            “Where is my bee-ru,

            I think it’s in my cooler,

            I better get it”  .... Adrian
