Carry On Tuesday, "the long and winding road"

Carry On Tuesday, the long and winding road

Carry On Tuesday, well here is my entry for this week:

walking along
the long and winding road
to the High North

This haiku is inspired on the haibun "The Narrow Road to the High North" as written by Matsuo Basho (1644-1694). A haibun is a travelogue in which prose and haiku are intwined.
Basho has written several haibun, but his "Narrow Road" is (in my opinion) his best one.

I hope you enjoyed reading this entry.

Warm greetings,



  1. I did...I enjoyed the road...I enjoy walking and I enjoy the thoughts your words open in my brain...
