A photograph to inspire poetry: Yellow Flower

Yellow Flower

Here is a photograph to inspire poetry.  It is a photograph of a small yellow flower.

There are a number of inspirations for poetry that could be drawn from this photograph.

One is the idea of the stages of the flower.  In the photograph, there is a blooming flower, flower buds, and spent flowers.  The idea of stages can be used in poetry.

Additionally, this flower could be considered a weed.  This could lead to the poetic examination of something like social class (the idea being, why is this flower a weed, but other flowers are not?).

Another idea would be to examine contrast.  In the photograph, the yellow flower contrasts with the green plant.

Also, this photograph could generally inspire a nature themed poem.
