April 27, 2021: Poetry Writing Prompt – Laurinda Lind

This poetry writing prompt submitted by Laurinda Lind:

Use the Fritz Perls-inspired dream-analysis technique of setting an empty chair beside your own chair; mentally put your poem topic (or a dream you want to both analyze and write a poem about) into the other chair, and ask it questions. To answer the question, literally get up out of your chair and move over to the other chair, and answer it as your topic or as your dream. While you are in the second chair, if you just let what wants to come out of your mouth come out, second chair, that will probably be your subconscious mind talking to you.

If you write a poem from this prompt, post it as a comment underneath the prompt in the Poetry Super Highway Facebook Group.
