Haiga 985 - from Basho's Oi no Kobumi

Haiku by Basho. Artwork by myself.

The 45th haiku from "Oi no Kobumi".

Since my childhood, I swam every summer at the Suma Beach, which was seen from where I stayed, and to where I walked a little, like about 20 minutes. The beach faces the Inland Sea so the waves are gentle, nice for both swimming and fishing.

Summer in Suma,
my shadow on beach
in childhood length

Summer in Suma,
riding on father's shoulder
child gazes the horizon
