haiku series for family

dandelions dangle
all the way home
grey hair on my mother
*
back home
the grown-up tree
too tall for my leaps
*
on her eightieth birthday
my aunt counts her teeth
little diamonds
*
new year’s eve
sizzling with firecrackers
my mom’s dumplings
*
wedding dress
from my grandma
daddy sweet bitter taste
*
april rain
my father bows
before burning ghost money
*
another year
my sister’s clothesline
icicles hang
*
autumn again
words jammed
our farewell
*
holding a moon cake
my baby in sleep
this full moon night
