A Long Rainy Season

Looking at Women in Japanese Poetry & Short Stories

Womanhood

The poem that was the inspiration for the title:

The nuisance
of breasts-
a long rainy season.

--Nobuko Katsura

This short verse can either say quite a lot about the speaker as well as the state of being a woman. Conversely, it may simply be very literal--the physical burden of carrying breasts on one's chest.
