From abstract to concrete . . .

#Haiku Happenings #1 (11/1/22): Shannon Blood’s latest haiku for #November #NaHaiWriMo!

Tidbits by Shannon

The November NaHaiWriMo challenge will be an intriguing adventure of working with abstract nouns. “What’s this?” you say. “What’s an abstract noun?” According to YOURDICTIONARY, “. . . abstract nouns aren’t accessible with the five senses . . . and even though you can’t see, smell, touch, taste, or hear them, they’re still all around you.”

The first prompt for November is “saintliness.” Now, that got my brain pondering — just how to go from some nebulous and socially loaded idea to something concrete?

saintliness/uneven footsteps/in dark places

How would you approach this particular prompt? I would love to hear your thoughts!
