In response to On the Road—The Journey Begins:
May you walk with ease
along a well-marked path
May your load be light.
∼ ∼ ∼
When mantras hum
the road carries me
the journey and I
are one again.

Suzanne is launching a new bi-weekly prompt series called ‘On the Road—Prompts for Haiku, Haibun and Haiku.’ The introductory post explains her vision:
We are all travelling some kind of road – the road of life – the road to the deep interior – the road to nowhere – the road to recovery – the road home … Our journeys can be physical and/or metaphorical; inner and outer.
On the Road prompts focus on various aspects of the journey. Two prompts are posted each week. One on Wednesday and the other on Saturday (Australian EST).
The prompts are offered as suggestions for haiku, haibun and haiga.
The first prompt is an old Irish blessing “May the Road Rise up to Meet You”. My first response is a haiku and the second is a tanka. After I wrote it I realized that a tanka may be outside the scope of this challenge…that remains to be clarified.
