Halloween’s Leftovers

My youngest in

construction worker goggles

and reflective orange vest,

adorned with a tinfoil-like astronaut helmet

and matching gloves.

Another day in Wonder Woman go-go boots,

an over-sized cowboy hat ,

and Superman costume.

Or a time after bath,

rubber bug rain boots,

Redskins helmet,

and freshly-cleaned birthday suit.


So thankful for a basket of dress-up goodies

in the corner of our playroom.

So thankful to witness the freedom and joy of childhood

in life’s everyday moments.
