Squirrel Haiku

PROMPT: A rough western equivalent of the Japanese Haiku is a poem of three lines with a syllable pattern of 5-7-5. I used that structure for multiple stanzas on three consecutive days, but I also chose my words from my magnetic tile stash!

Does   he see   me see
him  dig his secret dinner
from my grass and smile?


How to plant seeds so
they feast me   but do not grow?
Maybe the nut knows.

He dances the dirt
as at my window  I spy--
this watch, the day's gift.
