in my mouth

Masajo 真砂女 1969 age 63


恋したや苺一粒口に入れ

koi shita ya ichigo hitotsubu kuchi ni ire


Lee & Emiko’s English

longing for love---

I place a single strawberry

in my mouth

A red and round strawberry reminds me of my first love. After such a long time, it might sound strange to think about first love, but sometimes I have this mischievous temptation to fall into a new love.

Seasonal word: strawberry (summer)

Lovely, Sakuo san :)

My first love association...can't say "love" for it but we played like lovers..and the fruit was mango....but when i think of love, its grapes, vineyards-- Solomon's Song -- for me, romance works theoretically! :)

devika

There are many type of trigger for the first love.
In Japan strawberry is popular one.
Mango, grapes work importantly in your country. It 's very interest.

Thats good to know Sakuo san, about Japan...Mango, its especially because the season matches with our school vacation and down south its the common fruit and bananas...I do not know if its so for the country,

Our television once relayed the story of Osheen, a Japanese girl...and I was addicted with the life style shown there....Now Haiku is again stirring my interest in Japan :)

wishes,
devika

Devika san,
We can eat Mango too. And banana is the most popular fruit here.
Winter typical fruits are apple and orange.

Oshin is well known TV drama, I like it. You can catch Japanese old traditional custom through the drama.

Thank you for sharing.
