Another Bright Bouquet

      all we want is
      something to
brighten our days.

      covid killed
our hallowe'en.
the neighbor's
    children and
a friend came
      to the door,

before darkness
   (they really
could not wait)

silence for an hour, 
then a few bigger kids, 
      all before seven.

   looking back
      at bright
memories
of hallowe'en,

and flowers 
      in a vase,
sitting pretty
      on a shelf,
waiting mindless,
   for a buyer.

   all we want is
   something to
brighten our days.
