2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 29

2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 29

For today’s prompt, take a favorite line or image from an earlier poem this month and re-work it into a new poem. This is a fun exercise that I’ve used to successfully write new poems in the past.

One month to go,
one month to the show
and the year that almost killed my soul,
is over.
And it'll be sunset fades
Sipping cool spiked lemonade
wearing tanks and shorts for days,
it's summer.
But in the fall they come back,
bringing their huge stacks
overflowing drama backpacks,
of problems.
And I'll try to mold them again,
not giving up, but giving in,
to create a new life for them,
of hope.
