Weekend Assignment # 127: Write a haiku saying farewell to summer. A haiku, as many of you know, is a poem of three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven in the second and five again in the third. Simple and fun, and anyone can do 'em. You can do more that one if you want. As a bonus, technically speaking, haiku are supposed to feature seasonal imagery, so we've got that going for us this time around.
Extra Credit: A picture of a fun summer activity you're saying goodbye to for another year.

As you know, summer is not my favorite time of year, but it is necessary to have summer, so that beautiful autumn can comeback again. Still, summer is not without it's merits, such as the concerts on the beach in Santa Cruz. Opening night this year featured the Greg Kihn Band. For an old guy from the 80's he is still HOT! :) I looked hot that night too...tee hee...I had on my new shoulder cut-out T-shirt, and I wore my hair down, all 5 feet of it. Well, I pinned it up a little. :) Ok, so summer has it's moments. :)

"Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world."
