willfully naive or optimistic?

beginning now


i think we can do this   this is 

our new reality

being careful   thoughtful   considerate   adapting  


most of us are at least trying

smart people 

are innovating   inventing   creating 


working hard solving problems   less dogmatic 


are trying to be a part of the solution   


we’re learning what’s important   

who is important   

we’re learning to say please and thank you again  


this is our future   and marketa reminds me   

the past wasn’t perfect   either

It will be interesting to see which changes are lasting, especially after the vaccine arrives.

I cherish the world toward which this poem beautifully points.
