Haiku days are here again... give us a haiku containing the word Summer.

You can post it as a comment, or send it in with decorations (jpg or bitmap only please) for me to post, as you choose.

Apologies to those in the Southern Hemisphere who aren't actually having summer right now, but hey, you're outnumbered.

Here's one to start off with:

The Malevolence of Swans -- by File



Malevolent swans
on the still lake
and later grease stained

in quiet moments I can still hear
Rippling, still feel
Crimped edges

[scraped wafers on Billboards
reposted so often that all they promote
Now is mess]

Sibilant dragons embroidered in
Silk on Silk
thousands of red paper lanterns
leaving, levitated
by scented candles

Mah-jong tiles in the rain

The Healing Cut -- Mimitig


He takes a knife
Bright shining Sheffield steel
A subtle knife
A scalpel

Gently, firmly
Along anaesthetised skin
He runs the blade
And cuts

Crimson globes

I watch
Fascinated, strangely
To see the

One millimetre
Then deeper
Skin opens
Reveals what lies below

It is mysterious
It doesn’t hurt
Steel on flesh

Three more cuts
Quick, deep, precise
One excision
Four stitches

I am in awe
