Haiku Friday – sucking the life out of summer


Days are growing short

Calendar flipped to August

12 days until school


Attempting to make

the most out of these fading,

drowsy summer days


Making impromptu

trips to the pool and playground

Catching summer flicks


Enjoying picnics

and all of the delicious

summer season treats


Begging to stay out

until the yard lights come on ~

signaling bedtime


Postponing bedtime

and sleeping in the next day

Spontaneous naps


Heading to the store

with school supply list in hand ~

hunting for bargains


Computer time has

been temporarily placed

on the backburner


Must. enjoy. these. last

lazy, hazy, crazy days

of summer, oooooh yeeeaaaah
