December Haiku Share

This haiku appeared in a rengay I wrote over the summer, with Angela Terry and Julie Warther. It very closely reflects my life right now, as my youngest child puts the finishing touches on his college applications. Share a haiku about college, leaving home, autumn color, autumn in general, color in general, empty nests, or coffee. Or even tables.
