Freshness fill and active beginning

After a long well-rested and fun filled holiday

As we get back to our morning running routine

Great anticipations

Solos and songs of expectations

As we get into this new phase

All set and eager to explore 

And adventure into greater learning experiences

Thoughts and talks of new classes

New friends, teachers and instructors

Expression of fears tickling in as we get set

Hush!!! All will be fine

All for your good

The school bus shows up

Excitedly they run off

But deep down in me

Are parts of me whom I have bonded with

Passionately this period

Being taken away by necessity

As they run off to go become

Ones in whom I one day

Would be proud I bore and bred  

Smiles as the school bus zoom

With the happy singing lovelies

While I sink into the day’s activity

Awaiting their pleasant return

Into this welcoming arms of mama.
