the one

Masajyo  真砂女 1986 age 80.

死にし人別れし人や遠花火
shinishi hito wakareshi hito ya tohanabi

Lee and Emiko's English

the one who died
the one who diverced me ---
distant fireworks

My late ex-hausband and the man who diverced me, both had strong karmic ties
with me. They were both good men, and I remenber only their good sides now.

Seasonal word: distanct fireworks (summer)
