Yay! We did it! Final prompt and poem of the month! I hope you'll continue to bounce around on here beyond April, but for now, it's time for our final poem of this challenge. (Oh yeah, and stop the presses! Click here to learn the results of the 2020 November PAD Chapbook Challenge!)
For today's prompt, write a goodbye poem. Whether leaving for a holiday or going to get groceries, many people find themselves in positions of saying goodbye to each other. So this feels like an appropriate way to close out this year's challenge...until we meet again.

to the birds
they flew away

they will return
they always do
