Hula Hooping Back to the Beginning

A free write on hula hooping and relaxing.

I went out in a bliss of hip shakes and swirls, spinning for a better tomorrow

Forgetting the past--letting go of tomorrow, being in the now as "they" say...

The hula drops.

Pick up the hula, swing it around and here we go again, grasping that rhythm--letting go, letting go---

The trees are beautiful in the sunset, bare and naked with the bird nests stowed up top

The children are playing and laughing--thank goodness childhood still exists--still in my groove

Work it around in a twirl around my hips, I walk the hula this way and that, down low and up top

I'm really flying now, I grab it from the back with my hand, lift it over my head, spin it like a lasso, drop it back down,

Neil Young plays on the radio "Down By the River"

Swirl, shake, scoot around--it's getting fun now

Nothing matters--FINALLY--just the hula, me, trees, children and music.

Quite the cocktail, if I do say so myself.

I recall when they first came out and it was all the craze. You captured the movement beautifully!
