Lemonade, Anyone?

[citrustreesonline.com]

For the Poets United prompt: lemons

Life has been
so
extremely
 generous
at bringing me
lemons,
(I've driven
a few of them;
I divorced
another),
that
 I have
gotten
very darned good
at making
lemonade.

  11. When I was a child, I didn't like lemonade all that much, maybe because we made it from scratch and we would roll those lemons around for what seemed like forever to create the juice. Now, as an adult, it is one of my favorites. And I have to note, I've driven a few as well, and divorced another. We do have so much in common,
