'Letter To My Brother In San Francisco'

Dear David,
The rumor's true.

Winter has wrapped our sick and tired
world in the customary bandages.

Soon enough they'll be discolored - fouled
by the residue of our strivings.

But for today all is wrapped in a healing whiteness.
It's just as you remember:

The stillness of yard and street,
the trees transformed, the quiet!

Wow! Brother in San Francisco will be jealous and long for home. Wonderful imagery of snow as a bandage and our activities "fouling" the pristine snow.

jjorge, that is beautiful! Happy the brother with a poetic sibling.

If he is in San Francisco, then snow is only a wished-for treat, unless he heads for the Sierra. Of course, the City has other compensations.
