Haiku for the Holidays

I received a set of Haikubes for Christmas. Except for the first one, which is actually about the holiday, these poems are the product of rolling word dice. To be fair, I have to admit that only half of the actual words in each haiku came from the dice. I added enough of my own to make them grammatical.

angel ornaments
smile at gifts that peaceful lie
swaddled 'neath the tree

heavy blades of grass
dancing by the shady pool
following the rain

desperate as I,
our eyes consume every hope
ravenous tiger

ill fortune for love:
moonlight slips on wet stormclouds
flying between us

after sleeping late
rosy lips whisper their wealth:
a mouthful of yawns
