The road is life

This week’s prompt: –

“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life”

― Jack Kerouac, On the Road


“I set out on a journey of a thousand leagues, packing no provisions. I leaned on the staff of an ancient who, it is said, entered into nothingness under the midnight moon.”

-Matsuo Basho, The Record of a Weather-exposed Skeleton – his first travel travel journal.

The challenge is to create a haiku (or a related poetic form) inspired by either or both of the above quotes.  Please create a Pingback so others can find your work or post your response in the comment thread.   I will be setting up a Link Up but time got away from me this week.
