Back to school

Two of my kids and my husband are all going back to school today. Even though I'm not, I continue to enjoy the rhythm of September. It's a good time to start new endeavors.

To that end, I'd like to kick off a monthly exercise program (poetry, as opposed to situps).

September's exercise:

Take one poem that you've been wrestling with and try writing it as a sonnet. If you feel that you need more than 14 lines, try turning it into multiple sonnets (maybe even linking them).

I'll start with the poem that I posted the other day. If I can pull it off, I'll post the sonnet version toward the end of the month (it will probably take me that long).
