How do you write about the drama that is occurring in the inner world - the rich and complex landscape of dreams, active imagination and synchroncities?

Breaking My Heart, Julia Lewis

Breaking into the reader’s mind is the beginning of any piece of writing.  It might be as violent as a rock through a window or as subtle as habituation to an alarm clock.  The form of writing that specializes in breaking is poetry.

First we have the Earth, where disruptive earthquakes make it a dynamic planet. If we zoom in on the humans that inhabit the planet, we see that they too must bend and break according to stress to be dynamic beings. . . . 

I Break A Lot, Wil Franklin

... after a life of breaking with old ways, old friends and relationships, with home, with roots, with dreams, what does one become?  What does one fall back on? What is my shape, my color, my default?
