Before he died my grandfather told me 

he could hear five winds, with the same number
of stages on the journey to heaven, he left me
a chest of drawers and left a candle, music box,
dream catcher in each of the drawers, he was going
to collect the dreams of angels, then return to visit
my wife's first baby while still in the womb, where he
would share the dreams accompanied to music.
Eli my son was born with a musical gift and leaves
his musical papers in the chest of drawers.

I can only speak for myself, Barry. I've been on a bit of a (summer) hiatus, but I'm trying to catch up a little here today.

I always enjoy your poems where you use Native American themes. This one is concise and easy to follow. I like how it covers the generations.

As a folktale quality that charms the reader into the thread of a happy thought...generation to generation not snapped by mortality.
