Prompt: Creating a non-verbal gesture as an expression for your partner as he/she/they are going through a significant transition as a young adult during this time.

In this bridge project, I honored one of my peers in class. I embarked on creating four body gestures to pay homage to various aspects of his character, pairing them with poetic captions to represent each image. This is the poem:

Anchor to the presence;
Tangle each grace.
Soak in the silence;
Melt into ambiance.
