A Poem for this Pandemic

Reasons to Take a Walk During a Pandemic

there is a sea of blue by the deserted 14th hole

there are yellow flowers in the dry creekbeds

there are purple redbuds abloom outside quarantined houses

there are clumps of bluebonnets in unmown yards

purple verbena carpets the lawn of the locked church

and at evening pink primroses unfurl on the field by the school

beneath a sliver of orange moon

Spring is come. Spread the infection.
