2014 APRIL PAD CHALLENGE: DAY 21

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Write a "back to basics" poem. For me back to the basics means jumping to the fundamentals. Maybe it's me re-learning (or practicing) fundamentals-like running or writing-but it could also be a child learning how to tie his shoestrings, which can be a unique experience for both the child and the adult trying to give instructions and advice. Back to basics could also be re-setting a state of mind or getting back into a routine. In a way, spring is a season that gets back to the basics.

MY EFFORT
*****************************
RETURN TO LIFE AS USUAL


Last winter will not
Be soon forgotten
Record snow fall
Across the nation
Each week a new storm
Outdoing the last
Winter straying into
The next season staying
Past it's normal time
Leaving no chance for
Ice to melt
Leaving frozen mounds covering
The ground like
Relics from an ancient
Civilization paying tribute to
A long forgotten way of life
But this life is still here
Still thriving
Still driving to work
Happier now that things
Are getting back to the
Real next season
Spring taking us where
It's warm
Where we can survive
On the surface again
