ふるさとを恋ふこともなく障子貼る   阿部みどり女

furusato o kou koto mo naku shoji haru

without longing for home

I repaper

shoji screens

                                    Midorijo Abe

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

Fay’s Note:  Midorijo Abe (1886-1980)  ‘shoji haru’ (paper (or ‘repaper) a shoji screen) is an autumn kigo.  FYI:   ‘shoji’ itself is a winter kigo.
