Prompt #42 Safe Place

February 17, 2011


Safe Place

This week’s prompt is about finding, making, defining what is a safe place. What would have to be present in order for it to be safe. This can be a physical description, feeling states, a mental environment, or a spiritual element of safety, all or only one of these. What do you think of when you hear the words safe place? Would that be true for another? What might someone else need to feel to be safe? You are not restricted to your own sense of these words, and might want to imagine what a homeless or abused individual might need for a sense of safety. A child’s view would be different from that of an adult. Make a poem about a safe space.
