The last time it snowed
We didn’t know anyone
was sick
Or dying
The last time it snowed
We didn’t know anyone
Who was sick
Or had died
The last time it snowed
We went to the movies
and had dinner at that great local place
down the street
that closed
The last time it snowed
We didn’t know that
we would
watch
it
alone
The next time it snowed

Every snowfall, 2020-21, #1
First snow, a dusting
Plague series #46
and the dverse prompt of 12/21/20: endings

  1. Such a fine piece – evoking winter, the city and all that’s changed. I really liked the sense of place in this – the restaurant, the streets and the ‘romantic’ snowfall – the innocence of our past, now made tragic. Thanks for sharing.
