Summer Haiku

The same tree --
a second nesting of robins
learns the same songs

Summer reunion –
chasing  up and down
the family tree

Faded photograph
I stare back
at my grandfather's blind gaze

Clouds again today
a single morning glory
the color of sky

Daylily garden
the orange tail of the cat
wanders here and there

Night of falling stars
candles on the birthday cake
refuse to blow out
