haiku for a friday afternoon

summer laughs at rain
as it stumbles toward the sun
shies away for good



gentle in his lilt
voice smooth like his poetry
smiles through his truth



nightmarish they were
crows came to wake me today
can’t sleep through mourning



smiling baby girl
stares knowingly from the frame
can’t keep a long gaze



stuck in not crying
let the tears come raining down
still feels like winter
