old and new

text-frame-1884

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

*

praying the Psalms
always new
and more to learn

*

I have taken many more photos the last few years than I have written poems.  Time for some new poetry practice; along with new photos, and art in the public domain.  I love the research.

Every day, in my 60s now, is a blend of old and new.  Lots of rain in the night, and I sat and listened.  Then new light through raindrops on the window by this computer.  This is one of my most favorite times of the year: last full week in July and the small changes towards August.
