The Stars

He died when she was three or four but she remembers him.  He laughed and smiled a lot and sometimes she saw tears in his eyes. He told her stars were little holes in the curtains the angels closed at night and people we love who are in heaven can see us through those holes.  She knew her grandparent, her Pa, was watching her when she saw the stars at night. Now many many years later when she looks up at the night sky she knows Pa is watching her from one the starry holes.

Haiku

Touch the heart softly
Sweet laughter and silent tears
Forever to miss

    1. I had my grandparents, except for Pa, until I was a young teen. I did not appreciate them as I should have. They were people with interesting stories and I wish I knew more about their lives.

  1. Oh, Patricia. I love this, really love this story. My Grampy passed when I was 26, but this is the relationship we had. I remember him so vividly and miss him daily. Your haiku is a bonus of the heart. Hugs, my dear friend.

    1. This is one of two memories I have of my Pa. He died young and I am the only grandchild who knew him. The rest were tiny babies or not born yet. I look forward to your story.

So tell me...what are you thinking today?
