old woman angler

one old woman
fishing at the pier -
summer at twilight

original haiku "桟橋さんばしりする老女ろうじょ なつゆう"
composed by IZUMI Rishiro (?)
roughly translated by the blog owner

In Japan, when people hear the word "fisherman", they still think of men.
It is interesting to see a woman, an old woman, enjoying fishing. (We can imagine many stories behind.)
