strange thought

caught myself as i was staring at my grandfather lying in his hospital bed....

i was staring at his legs... the legs his mom probably bandaged when he was a kid

he has these little scars on his legs, they remind me of the bug bite scars bee has all over his legs...

i wonder, are those the bug bites HIS momma asked him not to scratch?

as i hold his hand, as he lies there battling pneumonia, are those the same marks a sassy-mouthed 5 yr old scratched 86 years ago.... and some day, will my son's granddaughter be experiencing what i am experiencing now? wondering what i am wondering now.
