Haiku Friday: Things Yet to do this Summer...

It's mid-August. The stores are featuring "back-to-school" sales, and when I was returning from Osler Island yesterday, I saw some yellow leaves on the trees at the Canadian border.  Summer will be over in a few fleeting moments.

What is left on your to-do list for the summer? Let's haiku about that-- but feel free to cover anything else that relates to this end-of-summer time.

Here, I will go first:

Something is missing
From this summer's happenings:
Not been in water.

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 formula and have some fun....

Don't leave me, summer!
So much left to do you know-
still must plant daisies.
Poplar leaves dropping
Oppressive heat continues
Cooler evenings

Mother Nature sends
mixed signals during August
Autumn still awaits

Mirror calm lake. Dusk.
Silence. Peace. Serenity.
Bobber twitch then dive.

Just the fish and me
My soul stores these moments up
Like squirrels hide fall nuts

Forbwinter will come
Harsh, cold, grey, and oh so long
What will keep me warm?

Memories of this
Will warm me through the cold months
Better than the fire.

Where are the smores?
Chocolate marshmallow good
Gram cracker fire.
The baby must be
Holy words,kisses.
