Poetry is a great way to deal with past issues that pop up unexpectedly. Free writing can help you get it all on the page and somewhere in the middle or so, things start to come together. That's why my poetry prompts often start out with free writing on whatever the topic of the day is, it helps get things moving. Once you see a thread of possibility, that's when you can decide if you want to create a specific type of poem or continue with free form and play with the words and spacing until you have it the way you want it.
