Haiku by Matsuo Basho of Japan. The Japanese callegraphy is by a friend of mine. ---- I am in the process of making haiga for all the haiku appeared in Basho's "Narrow Road of Oku". This haiga of the old pond is my trial in combining my artwork and the callegraphy. All will be done in the square format. There are 57 haiku to work with, and some are pretty difficult to visualize. This certainly will be big challenge.
