midwinter egg

Masajo 真砂女 1994 age 88

不機嫌の二つ割つたる寒卵
fukihgen no futatsu wattaru kan tamago

Lee & Emiko’s English

in a bad temper
I break two
midwinter eggs

Seasonal word: midwinter (winter )
Note: Midwinter eggs are laid during the midwinter period, which
happens to be the hen’s natural laying-period, so the eggs are very
nutritious. The bright yellow yolk makes the people associate it with
light or flame, and it brightens their heart in the cold weather.

This is sort of like the old saying:
cutting off your nose to spite your face.
The face in your haiga is very expressive!
