Haiku 2012 #4

teachers have returned
the world awaits its blessing
watch the advent sky

    A lovely beach scene, and the I love the colouring in the sky.

    The first thing I thought of when I read your Haiku, was an end to the school holidays. Holidays are still going here, but will end shortly. 🙂

    Me too, I thought about the end of the summer holiday, a last walk on the beach before returning to school or to work…

    D.F. the strollers in your painting indeed walk under the full color spectrum of His Light in this advent time. Bless you for this special seasonal haiku!

    Yes, thank you again Granbee! In fact, you’re pretty close to my initial intention for this – the teachers are meant to be teachers of wisdom, preparing the world for a great teacher. Well, we have to live in hope, don’t we?
