Haiku bags

in #japan5 months ago

I only recently noticed that this Japanese tea comes with a haiku on the back. Apparently, the haikus are from winners of a Japanese school haiku contest.

帰省(きせい)した
Came back home

きれいな姉に
To beautiful sister

ちょっと不満(ふまん)
Is a bit dissatisfied

Not sure if my translation is bad or if it just doesn't really make that much sense :P

Sort:  

Well, poetry is often obscure, but I can see a reasonable interpretation. This is a possibility:

  1. She's beautiful, but happiness eludes her.

Or, it maybe it is a bad translation :))

How's the tea?

Is like the baseline tea for green tea in Japan. It is pretty good but of course the fresh ones are better.

Like your interpretation but it seems to be pretty far off from the Japanese text. The haiku was written by a twelve year old so not sure if it has a really deep meaning :P
