Yosa Buson exhibition in Tenri

An exhibition on Yosa Buson is going on in my town. Buson's haiku books in which 212 newly found haiku are contained is the highlight of this exhibition. I plan to show a friend to this event this weekend so I checked it out today. A scroll haiga by Buson was a part of the show (see the photo). His haiku goes as follows:


Year ending -
day ending, too, for
a charcoal peddler

Below is my version of the same haiku.
