Twinkling gray blue eyes
Wove love through life’s tough lessons
Kneeling and weeding

Although departed
Hero’s status perseveres
Garden in full bloom

Dedicated to my dad

    Your verse reminds me more of my grandfathers – unfortunately the next generation, my father was more city, suburbia. I think though if he had the chance my own dad might have enjoyed the earth. May all of their memories be for blessings.
