Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
First I have to apologize for a little confusion about yesterday's prompt. I have used "creation" for prompt instead of "ancestor" as planned on our prompt list. On my 'paper-list' (on which I had written the stories to use) I had written "creation" as prompt instead of "ancestor". Our yesterday's post IS the "ancestor"-episode, but I used the wrong word, I used the word for the story. So my excuses for that. I have placed "ancestor" in that episode-title today.
This month is almost over, we are in the last semester of this month and that makes me a little bit sad, because we will have no Jack Kerouac haiku anymore after this month has gone.
But ... it's still May and so today I challenge you to write a new haiku, inspired on the one given by Jack Kerouac, in his spirit, sense and tone. I know several of you, my dear Haijin, are fan of Kerouac's haiku and I am too ...
Here is another haiku written by Kerouac for your inspiration:
– the lady next door

from behind the curtains
dances in the arms of her boyfriend -
just a dream
just a dream
to become happy again and in love
