Haiga 654 Hakusen Watanabe haiku 2

Haiku by Hakusen Watanabe (Japan). Artwork by myself.
There are a lot of stories about how the war prisoners were mistreated. They are often exposed to human cruelty, treated as like slaves.
Reading a haiku like this, we see there are moments of humanity appear even in time war. It is like a little, warm light of cigarett in the darkness.

For this haiga, I drew with crayon three separate images: the human figure, the bars, and the cigarett. I scanned them, put them together and adjusted the colors.
