Back to School Haiku

Cool autumn daybreak
No child is calling for me
Still, I am awake

(Thanks to the women of One Deep Breath...
want to see some more solitude-themed haiku?)

Beautiful! Your haiku expresses so much emotion in a sparse phrase.

In my case, it is me who returns to school, my mum is left at home.

Original idea for this theme - I like it.

I love a haiku that speaks volumnes in so few words. Well done! Happy back to school mom :)

Very nice. I'm not a mother, but imagine it is at once lonely and a relief...

By the way, thank you for stopping by, I hope to see you again!

Any woman aware of back to school and with an empty nest will surely relate.
