賢母脱ぎ良妻も捨て更衣     西村睦子

kenbo nugi ryôsai mo sute koromogae

            taking off ‘wise mother’ status

            and discarding ‘obedient wife’

            a change of clothing

                                                            Mutsuko Nishimura

from “Haiku Dai-Saijiki” (“Comprehensive Haiku Saijiki”), Kadokawa Shoten, Tokyo, 2006

Fay’s Note:  ‘koromogae’ (a change of clothing) is a summer kigo.
