Think about someone important in your life.
Someone who made an impact on you.
Write a list or a few paragraphs of events in this person’s life.
It could be milestones or simple everyday things.
Turn what you just wrote into a poem with these suggestions:
Make this a numbered poem. Each stanza gets a number.
Each stanza is four lines.
Each stanza represents a chunk of time in the person’s life, perhaps by decade.
Whose arms held her?
Who comforted her?
Late for work
Not a charm
