homecoming - Haiku

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

In one the experiences recorded by Basho, a farmer lends his horse to Basho, saying, 'There are hundreds of cross-roads in the grass-moor. A stranger like you can easily go astray. This horse knows the way. You can send him back when he won't go any further.'
On reaching a small village, the horse is sent back.
