Carpe Diem Haiku – Chita


During this long trip pangs of homesickness come suddenly. With every station the train take me further and further from the place I called my real home, the place were waking up in my bed was a routine I’m trying to escape. Am I an exile? No I am escaping exactly those elements of life I now suddenly long for. This sense of nostalgia grows stronger, and I start to feel that I have passed a frontier where all roads back are closed. Then you look at me, and I realize what I have found, and start to look forward again.

Only in your company will I dare to walk down this unknown road.

  1. Traveling by train really changes the way to think of things. Distances cloud, destinations become unsure and you find yourself simply just going for the ride to think. >KB

  2. Imaginary train rides deep into the ice Tiaga; maybe you will see a snow leopard or white tiger from the steamy windows as you sip vodka and gobble stroganoff; I really dig this form, brother.

  3. It is beautiful, developing with every line. But most of all to me speaks trust i can feel so strongly there.. Love and trust – something so vital being on an unknown road…
