never born

Masajo 真砂女 1955 age 49


umarezariseba to omou toki kari kaeru

Lee & Emiko’s English

when I think

I should never have been born---

departing geese

I was extravagant in my way of living, but never thought it was a happy life.

How many times have I thought of not coming into being ?

Seasonal word: departing geese ( spring )

sakuo haiga

haiku Masajo

To All

A half of the book titled [ Love Haiku] has been pictured.

It takes one year.

I will keep to paint it’s haiga one more year.

Love Haiku contains Masajo’s selected haiku. And it is translated by Lee Gurga and Emiko Miyashita into English.

Thank you for your patience.

summer birds leave
in flight to another life
a rooted tree

The thoughts of breath, adventure, and stability, all in this single haiga, Sakuo San.
