Day 22 Prompt: Dangerous


Some things are obviously dangerous, like walking too close to a cliff, and other things, not so much. Free write for ten minutes exploring what is obviously dangerous, not so much, and what dangerous means to you.

You could turn this into a rant poem, especially given the times.

Suggested poetry type: Trolaan (keeping with the Ts.)

Word Prompts:


Music for your Muse:
