“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” ― Philip Pullman

Several years ago I was searching through the photos on PublicDomainPictures.net and came upon the above photo. I immediately started hearing a story poem that I ended up writing called Blind. Most of the time my poetry tends to be either how I am feeling or something from my life but sometimes, I enjoy writing story poetry.
Poetry Prompt:Search through the photos at PublicDomainPictures.net until you find one that sparks a story poem for you.
With my poem, Blind, I chose to count syllables (I chose 4) and every line the same amount of syllables with the rhyming abcb format. You can choose to do the same as I did or you can go and choose a different type at ShadowPoetry.com
