The Nearing Summer

Awaiting summer
So missed, loved and yearned by me
Dreaming, wishing to

Relax, unwind, have some fun
Laying on the sandy coast
Sun soaking my skin

Fantasizing to
Escape from school, my prison
To approach freedom

Summer Vacation

Hey there! I am glad to see you mixed it up. I have never seen a haiku like this, they are usually three lines, but I am glad you extended it. I know how you feel about summer... which means that you wrote this haiku in a relatable sense for the reader. Bravo on that. I like the title. I like the concept of this haiku. I like your quick lines that convey your desires. Good job.
