Haiga 898 - Matsuo Basho haiku from Nozarashi Kiko

Haiku by Matsuo Basho. Artwork by myself.

The 17th haiku from "Nozarashi Kiko".
Basho wrote: "The remains of Saigyo’s thatched hut is off to the right of the Inner Temple, reached by pushing a few hundred yards along a faint woodcutter’s path. It faces a steep valley,a stunning view. The “clear trickling water” seems unchanged from of old, and even now the drops trickle down.
