November 28 Prompt – Despair

Writers in the Grove NaNoWriMo Prompt a Day badgeThe following prompt is by Anne Stackpole-Cuellar, a Writers in the Grove member, a part of our Prompt-a-Day project to support NaNoWriMo during November 2015. Each prompt was generously donated by our Writers in the Grove members. You are welcome to take this prompt in any direction you wish.

Describe one small thing or event which pulled your character away from despair.

To quote Robert Frost:

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.

Poem from The Poetry Foundation.
