light snow


light snow
rests and covers
tree branches
words line a new page
make a new poem

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

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