This is the final Wednesday of this April PAD Challenge, but it's not the final Wednesday poetry prompt. Throughout the year, I offer poetry prompts and example poems to get things started on Wednesdays. Just visit the WD home page on Wednesdays or check out the Wednesday Poetry Prompts page each week.
For today's prompt, write a remix poem. This has become one of my favorite prompts, because it asks us to look over what we've written this month and pick something (or many somethings) to poem out in a new way. Maybe your free verse becomes a sonnet or your sestina transforms into haiku. Or take a line or phrase from each of your poems this month and work it into a cohesive new creation.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.
Note on commenting: If you wish to comment on the site, go to Disqus to create a free new account, verify your account on this site below (one-time thing), and then comment away. It's free, easy, and the comments (for the most part) don't require manual approval like on the old site.

Here’s my attempt at a Remix Poem:
"the field of mars"
l'homme vert plane au-dessus de paris
avec elle et ne parle qu'avec son espirit
alors qu'elle roucoule à l'ouiseau
en dessous d'eux dans le crépuscule
des fleurs se répandant comme le feu
et comme des enfants
(Basically, I just inverted the French-English from my poem for Day 18.)
