A back to school haiku.

Summer’s winding down.

Autumn breezes will abound.

School buses make rounds.

    Beautiful haiku and may I add, a PERFECT haiku in terms of how technical it is and how it follows the rules of writing a haiku (i.e. syllables, contrast on the last line etc.) Hate to get reminded though that I’ve got school coming up soon…grr…
    But, beautiful and perfect!

    Thanks my friends for your support. Sorry about the broken sentences I will submit a fix.

    Thanks, Pam

    Summer goes and comes like it should. Right on schedule. Like it!

    Haiku’s have been having broken sentences lately, which doesn’t do their structure any good at all; since it depends a lot on appearance. No fault of yours, however; and that’s exactly what is going on for me right now. Beautiful poem, and perfect choice of picture.

    Pam,
    A very good haiku. Every mother should read this. Does it say LaidLaw on the school bus? Is that a county or town? I’ll send you a message soon.

    Oh, I hate to see the end of summer. My granddaughter’s been back in school two weeks now.

    Lovely haiku from you as always Pam, I can’t believe the summer holidays are nearly over!

    Good to see a Haiku Poem here. Good write on a difficult form.
    But I believe your poem sounds bit rhythmic where Haiku shouldn’t be rhymed.
