I love a list poem. Today, write a list of unknowns. If you’re having trouble getting started, try beginning each line with “unknown.” Unknown: my ancestors. Unknown: the colour of tomorrow.
A stranger bares their soul to you (or your character) about the greatest turning point in their life - their dark night of the soul. Something happens and you are unable to extricate yourself from this person or the situation.
Where does this occur? On a Tinder date? In an elevator? At the playground? At Burning Man? What were the circumstances surrounding this turning point? What happens to cause you (or your character or speaker) to become linked to this person?
"You will grow through this, too."
Use the above line as the first line or title of your story or poem, with this image to guide your writing.
