Ryozen Hoshi (The Monk Ryozen), Poet No. 70 - Dramatic scene of Ishidome Busuke drawing a sword as his sister Ohana cowers behind him, one arm wrapped around his shoulder. She peers over his back, her tie-died kimono trailing on the floor behind her, The wind blows the tassels hanging from lanterns above, adding a sense of movement. The verse by the monk Ryozen reads:

In my loneliness
I leave my little hut.
When I look around,
Everywhere it is the same:
One lone, darkening autumn eve.

A handsome design with fine bokashi shading on the water and ground.
