Haiga 233-Basho

Haiku by Basho. From "Narrow Road to Oku"
The faint figure within the moon is supposedly Basho, not a rabbit as we Japanese has imagined since the olden time. Basho, laied back, enjoying the moon ride.

A strange view on that. But I am fascinated by the light and the verse, Kuni san.

Best wishes

I like your depiction of the scene.
Many times such a moon have I seen.
