Haiku by Matsuo Basho. Artwork by myself.

The 3rd. haiku from "Nozarashi Kiko".
Basho was passing the Hakone Mountains. It was misty, no sign of the Mt. Fuji. Basho enjoyed the hazy sight, however, thinking he could play around with his imagination.
I played around also, drawing only the background patterns, leaving only a hint of the outline of the famous mountain.
