far from home at night

far from home at night

far from home at night
lonely road gives no comfort
waiting for moonrise

Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #47 quest for a (new) masterpiece
(Follow classic haiku “rules,” 5-7-5 syllable line structure
with seasonal kigo – here, moon for Autumn
– and cutting word – here, comfort
– with first and third lines interchangeable.)

      • I liked traveling when I was young, but now, I mostly just want to enjoy the peaceful home that I now have, and given my interest in pretty much the most insignificant details of everything, I don’t have to go far to find amusement or something to do (following caterpillars down the trail comes to mind). When I have left home I get homesick very quickly. Always have.

  1. It’s been a long time since I’ve been on the road at night, especially on a long distance journey. I remember though and can visualise the dashed lines in the middle of the road blinking by. It’s a time of feeling small and insignificant and even lost although one knows where one is going.
