Missing our Grandfathers

Jazzey shared a tribute
to her grandfather
the day after
his funeral

we listened and
we remembered
our own grandfathers

leaving hearts
with loose holes
like a knit poncho

the dead
the absent
the never known

to all those grandfathers
not in our lives--

we may hardly know you
but we love you
just the same

It's so great to hear you, a dedicated, energetic and inspiring person, take a part of yourself and share it with us as you do with your kids. What is even more amazing is that even if I didn't know you, and how well you do in the classroom, I would be inspired. And I am.
