for my grandfather

i celebrate
your ocean heart,
born a secret gleam
your days left spinning in
and velv
et angels
of breezy voice,
a quilt of sacred laughs
from morning
yesterday's quiet sister ghost
still small and fleeting
some quiet song

Here's my tribute to him -- the sweetest and most caring person I've had the privilege to meet.

I like "ocean heart." And laughing can be sacred, so sacred, you are right.
