sleepwalker’s nightly path

no one knows where you go




I am reminded of my son’s odd sleepwalking habits. He seemed to have a path that he always followed (it always ended on the stairs). It got longer as he got older; The neighbors would often find him asleep on their stairs.


The Carpe Diem prompt is to write a Tan Renga using Basho’s fine haiku.
