Blown Away

In park sitting with thoughts
have a to do list of my " oughts,"
but the wind is high
sun's just in the sky.

Willow fronds such beauty,
like a hula dancer they sway,
trying to shift my negative thoughts
let the breeze blow them away.

Dog's pad past,
child's scooters skim,
the elderly stroll
and nod on a whim.

My mood is lifting
life slots into place,
cobwebs have blown,
I rise and pick up the pace.

hehehe... "have a to do list of my 'oughts'" - I like the way this is put. Very relatable too as in I have a long list like that too. I also very much enjoyed the mood expressed. It's feeling cheerful, hopeful, like a new found liberty has been acquired to just get on with what is wished to be done after a while of less easy times. Beautifully uplifting - thanks.

this provokes feelings of hope and progress, for me... I hope they're not off course :) Anyhow, these words brought a feeling I felt to be familiar in some way... thanks.
