names and addresses

names and addresses
for dear friends
no longer on earth
old address book

not yet written
in the overflowing book
cards and envelopes
with last known
addresses

still wanting to remember
what may no longer
be current – places I was
people I knew

Time of Singing, Spring 2018

“not yet written” and “still wanting to remember” were also published in All the Way Home: Aging in Haiku (2019). Edited by Robert Epstein. Middle Island Press; West Union, WV.

“my hope is in thee”

And now, Lord,
what wait I for?
my hope is in thee.

Psalm 39: 7
