Today’s Haiku (February 6, 2011)

春浅し旧姓で待つ上野駅   森 裕子

haru asashi kyûsei de matsu ueno-eki


early spring

with my maiden name

I wait at Ueno Station

 Yuko Mori

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

Fay’s Note:   Ueno Station in Tokyo is a hub of local distance train.   In this haiku, I do not think a poet is waiting for her lover.   She is waiting for someone she knew in her childhood.  

The network of Shinkansen (bullet train) makes a trip faster, but I remember a ski trip by a sleeper train.
