Haiga 893 - Matsuo Basho haiku from Nozarashi Kiko

Haiku by Matsuo Basho. Artwork by myself.

The 12th haiku from "Nozarashi Kiko"
Basho visited the thatched hut of a recluse living in tranquillity. There was a small patch of garden adjacent to it, where he saw ivy and a few stalks of bamboo. And there was autumn wind. The whole scene prompted Basho to write this haiku.
