Haiku #10: we hold hands

My grandfather passed away over the weekend. He was my last living grandparent. This haiku was inspired by my grandmother’s passing in 2014, shortly after their 60th wedding anniversary. I believe they are reunited at last:

we hold hands…
the coolness
of late summer grass
