I leave you gently

I leave you gently
with the quiet din of peace
like waves leave the shore

I wrote this haiku after breastfeeding my baby to sleep and then managing to extricate myself from her mollusk-like grasp to go do other things. But it could refer to other kinds of separation too.
It’s a traditional haiku because it ends with an image of nature.
