Haiga 221

Haiku by Basho Matsuo. From "Narrow Road to Oku"
A painter named Kaemon gave each Basho and Sora a pair of straw sandals with throngs dyed dark purple, which reminded BAsho of iris flowers. Such a nice present for the travelers.
I, as a painter, might give them pairs of Nike shoes with iris colored throngs if they were to come around my way.
