I should not be online right now bye

Here are things that I can think of that might help inspire my poetry. I don't know if they'll help you, but maybe!
1. pick a motif in the story and see what new things you can get out of it. make an image into a relationship symbol. Like, the mice, the superfibre scarf, shion's hair, the sky (they mention that a lot), the forest (there's a quote about how nezumi's like a forest, and the further in you go the more mysterious he gets), the cherry cake, the thunderstorm, the wall, the wind, a colour like grey or red, etc.
2. try and re-create a mood in a verse. what do you think their peaceful evenings are like, their hectic days?
3. just listen to **** tonnes of music
4. imagine how the story would have been different if one small choice had or hadn't been made, or if one small coincidence occurred. how would the characters feel about it? what would or wouldn't change between them? (idk i just really like the thought of other possibilities and different timelines and things)
5. alternatively, what would be constant across universes/timelines no matter what??

I guess it's just a matter of zeroing in on one motif or topic or mood or moment that interests you.
Yeah... that's all the advice I got. Sorry. ^^;;
