Almost

torii

no answers
yet no questions
I return empty

***

gibbous moon
see how radiant
almost

***

the wind that brushes my lips
drifts away
I with it

Linked to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, where Basho’s journey to the Deep North (Oku no Hosomichi) concludes. From Tsuruga, Basho travels to Ogaki, where a joyful reunion with Sora and other friends marks the end of his trip. But, like a troubadour who cannot sing his songs in the same place for long, he soon sets off again, torn from his home, as he says, like a clam from its shell.

I have followed in Basho’s footsteps this entire month through the prompts at CDHK. Grateful to all who travelled along with me. Your support was invaluable. Hope 2016 brings with it many new journeys and more beautiful poetry. Have a wonderful new year!!
