Artwork to inspire poetry: 500 gold squares

500 Gold Squares

This artwork is comprised of five hundred gold squares.  It can help inspire poetry in a variety of ways.

For example, a poet could look for a pattern in the white spaces and see what that inspires.  Or, a poet could connect the squares and find inspiration in the design they make.  Additionally, a poet could focus on the number five hundred and use that as a start for a poem.  A poet could also focus on the gold in the artwork and compare it, for example, to actual gold.  A poet could look at the design, and see it as a metaphor for something (for example, a group of people in a crowd).  Or, a poet could examine how they believe the artwork was made (maybe, for instance, focusing on repetition).

This artwork can help inspire a variety of poetic ideas.
