The last day of summer is technically one month away. But with the cooler temperatures and back-to-school activities, everyone is feeling the season coming to a close as the month ends. As a farewell to a season that brought stunning heat, powerful storms, winning baseball, iced coffee, and Mars rover mania, we present some August-themed haiku by Phillips’ staff paired with summertime images from the permanent collection. We welcome your haiku or other verse in the comments.
In August I moved
Which has both good and bad points
But now it is done
