Masajo真砂女 1969 age 64
shiratama ya aisu hito nimo uso tsuite
sweet rice dumplings---
even to my love
a little white lie
This is one of my favorite haiku. I fibbed and knew it well. This happened
one day---the cute fib of a woman.
Seasonal word: sweet rice dumpling( summer )
Trans; Lee & Emiko
Note:Shiratama is a rice-flour dumpling chilled and served with brown
sugar syrup, a popular summer sweet. The whit of the shira( white)
tama( ball-shped thing) is very refreshing in the heat.
