Haiga 190

Haiku by Yosa Buson of Japan.
Buson is known as a haijin, but actually his profession was a painter, and a good one. He left many screen paintings of large size, including the one on which Buson wrote down all the text of "Narrow Road of Oku" by Basho, and added illustrations here and there.
