My Grandfather

My Grandfather
was a very Special Man...
a Great Man..even
..to very many people
He was a Scholar
a Teacher
..a Hero in Wartime
they say

............but to me
he'd read stories
..in pjamas
before tucking me in
to a duvet..
...blown breeze
in the dark room
...with the ticking clock
the faint scent of him

my grandfather

So interesting how different people in our life know us in such different ways...

Thank you

yes thats precisely what I was trying to capture
the contrast of public perception..and a memory thats intimate...and paint a "word picture"
