This poem is more a senryu than a haiku. Where the haiku deals with nature, the senryu revolves around people and human truths and insights. This senryu is about the reality of divorce and what it does to our children.

Children of Divorce

When parents divorce,
children are damaged for life:
but some are relieved.

I appreciate this poem, and that you explained the difference between these two traditional poetic forms.
