red dog and Irises

By Issa,1813, Age 51
Second Month, he is living in Kashiwabara in a rented house. In autumn, his inheritance dispute finally settled, he moves into his family home.
This ku conveys the peace mood on May. He has been in really peaceful mind.

I appreciate best the resonance in his haiga, the shape of the dog's mouth as he yawns, mimics the shape of the flowers; as well, the jutaposition of the dog, in western thought, 'man's best friend' and the blossoming a blessing from God.

much love
