Masajo 真砂女 1994 age 88
nakihokuro sodatete nakanu kaki wo waru
Lee & Emiko’s English
a mole under my eye:
I nurture it and split an oyster
that does not cry
Seasonal word: oyster ( winter )
Note: It is said that if one cry a lot, a mole under one’s eye grows
darker or becomes more visible. Therefore one who has a mole in this spot is said to live a tearful life. Masajo’s sorrow makes her think she is growing a mole.
Her moles are her men related. They brought her hazards, but she
used them as leverage to open her fortune. And she got the success of business and haiku achievement.
