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
