spring loneliness

Masajyo 真砂女

haru sabishi name ni todokanu ishi won age

Lee & Emiko’s English

spring loneliness---
it falls short of the surf
this stone I toss

when I was filled with loneliness, I often went to the seaside in the mornings and evenings. With my thin arm I would toss a stone to the rough surf, but the stone hardly reach it. I felt I was completely helpless and trapped in my destiny at that time.
