Basho's journey into Deep North - a Haiku

For this month, Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is travelling with Basho on the Narrow Road into the Deep North.

The difficult journey becomes more of a struggle because of Basho's health problems.
But the master keeps going.

"It was indeed a terrible thing to be so ill on the road, when there still remained thousands of miles before me, but thinking that if I were to die on my way to the extreme north it would only be the fulfillment of providence..."

    1. 'Well done' is what we keep striving for. And at times, succeed.
