Okay here's the challenge, create something new from the last line of another poem. Try to be creative, give the words a new direction, turn it into something different!

Round 15 Prompt

For my first crush my soul is still yearning.

Deadline 7/31

Round 15 Winning poem by Andy~~getting back to WDC

Loves Young Heart

Fire kindled deep within, passion’s burning
like a summer brushfire out of control,
love and desire, her virtues I extol—
for my first crush my soul is still yearning.
Many sunrises since I saw her last,
I wonder how changed is the girl I knew?
Eyes of ice blue and bangs hot pink-tinged hue,
in our first kiss is where Love's young heart's cast.
Bright-coloured ribbons or butterfly clips,
scrunchies or bands decorated her hair;
she could be saturnine but showed real flair,
with flashes of humour and sassy quips.
Fire kindled deep within, passion’s burning
for my first crush my soul is still yearning.

Have fun and Write On!

Thanks for Your Generosity!

Kyle Curcio
