facing the unknown ~ haiku

This haiku is my response to
Carpe Diem #1773 … A Field of Dried Grass (Basho),
which offers a haiku by Bashō (in blue) as inspiration.
Bashō’s is considered his Jisei no ku, or deathbed poem.

falling sick on a journey
my dream goes wandering
over a field of dried grass
              Bashō (tr. Chèvrefeuille)

facing the unknown
dried grass near the end of life
how long this journey
