Haiga 224-Basho


Haiku by Sora. From "Narrow Road to Oku"
Kanehusa is an imaginary worrior, who played important role in the Story of Lord Yoshitune.
He was very dedicated to the lord, fought hard, and died in the fire. "Narrow Road to Oku" does not tell Kanehusa's tale. The reader is required to have some knowledge in Japanese history as well as of Chinese one (Basho, and the then intellecturals, loved Chinese literature and its tradition)

You break up your "green phase", a sunset-red apears. I like this very much.

Best wishes
