Haiga 219-Basho

Haiku by Basho Matsuo. From "Narrow Road to Oku"
When I read this haiku, the following haiku written by Kobayashi Isssa came to my mind.
Being lost on
dim vague path,
I step on water puddle (my translation)
I made haiga for this haiku some year ago. I got the data out and reworked on it and turned it into this haiga.

I'm always amazed how you achieve so much with so few lines - the facial expression is exactly right!

I love this comical character. Will we see him again?
