Haiga 890 - Matsuo Basho haiku from Nozarashi Kiko

Haiku by Matsuo Basho. Artwork by myself.

The 9th haiku from "Nozarashi Kiko", in which Basho wrote:
"I visited Mutusbaya Fu ̄baku in Ise, resting my feet for about ten days. As night came on, I worshipped at the Outer Shrine. With shadows draped across the First Torii and sacred lanterns lit here and there, the “pine wind from the high peak” pierced my flesh and struck deep into my heart."
