A photograph to inspire poetry: Lupini bean plant

Lupini Bean Plant

This is a photograph of a lupini bean plant.  The plant has been growing for roughly one month.

This photograph can inspire poetry in a number of ways.  For example, a poet could write about farming or gardening.  They might write about food with lupini beans.  They could take a broader view, and write about the progression of something, which would be similar to how the seed, progressed to the plant, which may progress to beans.

One idea for poetry, would be to notice that there are seven leaves on each stem of the plant, and use the idea of seven of something in a poem.  For example, a poet might write a poem about seven people that share a connection (similar to the seven leaves that are connected on each stem).
