Chasing the Blues Away

For chasing the blues away 
What better way is there
Than a walk on a sandy beach
With the wind in your hair

Watching the foam on the sea
As it’s whipped up by the wind
Imagining  tunes being played
On the rocks as the wind skims

Limpets clinging to life
Immovable objects for sure
The seagull hoping some might fail
Falling to the shore

You can’t help but smile at the dogs
With the wind up their butts
Running in circles trying hard
To catch whatever is up

The funniest sights are the humans at play
Hanging on like grim death to the cord
As their kites swirl and sway
Trying hard not to swear as the wind
                  carries it away

    Nice write Seren. I like the use of the quatrain form, but I also like that in the last you broke the form. Vivid imagery with wit and humor. That should chase the blues away, so to speak. Good job and good luck.
