haiku – takeshita shizunojo

unconcerned
with the tenant farmers’ dispute
rice plants have grown

kosaku sogi ni kakawari mo naku ine to naru

Takeshita Shizunojo (jap. 竹下 しづの女; )

“was one of the few women haiku poets to appear in the early years
of modern Japan. Wives, at that time, were responsible for
nearly all domestic matters. With a husband and five children,
home life was extremely busy and oppressive for her.”
