This is my response to my “On the Road” prompt The Road is Life
This week I have used quotes from both Jack Kerouac and Matsuo Basho as inspiration.
“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 prompts are offered as suggestions for creative exploration. There is no need to feel intimidated by the strict rules of traditional haiku. Please feel free to experiment.
