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

Psalm 74 and poem

Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.

Psalm 74: 17

I wrote this poem yesterday:

spruce tree branches
by the window
where I write

thoughts of my parents
and all the history
they lived through

one day at a time
and careful plans
for the future

as I write in this day’s
bright morning light

spruce tree branches
