at the journey’s end
…destination unimportant…
how did you get there?

·∞·•§•·∞·

did you know the way?
or set out blindly…    searching?
or,  like sheep,  follow?

·∞·•§•·∞·

how did you get there?
all that matters       …in the end…
the journey itself

“The End”     The Doors

Originally written by Jim Morrison as a song about breaking up with girlfriend Mary Werbelow, released in January 1967.

lyrics ~

This is the end Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I’ll never look into your eyes…again
Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need…
of some…stranger’s hand
In a…desperate land
Lost in a Roman…wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane
All the children are insane
Waiting for the summer rain, yeah
There’s danger on the edge of town
Ride the King’s highway, baby
Weird scenes inside the gold mine
Ride the highway west, baby
Ride the snake, ride the snake
To the lake, the ancient lake, baby
The snake is long, seven miles
Ride the snake…
he’s old, and his skin is cold
The west is the best
The west is the best
Get here, and we’ll do the rest
The blue bus is callin’ us
The blue bus is callin’ us
Driver, where you taken’ us
The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall
He went into the room where his sister lived,
and…then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door…
and he looked inside
Father, yes son,
I want to kill you Mother…
I want to…
WAAAAAA
C’mon baby,———
No “take a chance with us”
C’mon baby, take a chance with us
C’mon baby, take a chance with us
And meet me at the back of the blue bus
Doin’ a blue rock
On a blue bus
Doin’ a blue rock
C’mon, yeah
Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill
This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end
It hurts to set you free
But you’ll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die
This is the end

    Thanks for the reminder that the journey is probably more important than the destination. Keep writing!

    Journey with My Muse

  2. Phew, wonderful stuff! This reads like a movie script, love the action. The end of one cycle hearalds the dawn of another. I like the thought that the journey is more important than the destination.

    Well challenged!

  3. Thank you for being one of my companions on this wonderful haiku journey of Few Miles. It’s sad that this is the last day of the Haiku Challenge, but I look back with great pleasure and nice thoughts about all the wonderful haiku I have read this Journey.
    This set of haiku you have written for this last day is gorgeous. Thank you for sharing these with us.

    Namaste

  4. Sweet haiku. And even sweeter to see a Jim Morrison fan! :-) It has been a wonderful journey, hasn’t it?

  5. Someone is Special

    this is beautiful dani.. I’m touched to read your haiku and yeah journey is more important than destination..!

    • you’re too kind! {smile} the journey through The Haiku Challenge has been wonderful, SiS! as much reading everyone else’s haiku as writing them. thank you so much for all of your efforts!

  6. The journey – no matter where it may lead – is the essence … the experiences and lessons learned along the journey make the destination secondary — as long as it is in our highest good.

    In regards to the Challenge: It has been a joy to visit you and your creative contributions this past month. In many ways it is difficult to believe the challenge is over, and in other ways, I am glad. :D It has been a pleasure. Thank you ~~ Here is my last day … Day 29.

    • that’s what i have found, too. as much as i have enjoyed The Challenge, it has been difficult to keep up. {smile} i’m looking forward to visiting at leisure now and really enjoy your offerings! ♥ and i will always be seeing you, becca!

  7. Thanks for your support of the Haiku Challenge.

    The journey is certainly more important then the destination ~

  8. Such a special Haiku to close this challenge. It was so good to share it all with you.

    • thank you, ellecee! ♥ i’m so happy to have discovered you and your wonderful poetry through the challenge! i’ll be seeing you soon.
