Haiga 820 - Taneda Santoka haiku

Haiku by Taneda Santoka. Artwork by myself.

Without my noticing, I have posted mountain related haiku recently. And I am posting today yet another mountain haiku, a famous one by Santoka.

I did a haiga for this haiku many years ago. This time I redid it, changed it almost entirely.
Mountains here in Japan in this season are such as the ones mentioned in this haiku, layers of greens (in different shades) everywhere. I enjoyed such scenes during to and from Tokyo on the bullet train in the past two days.
