Artwork to inspire poetry: Rosemary branch

Rosemary branch

This artwork is of a rosemary branch.  A rosemary branch can inspire a number of poetry ideas.  Some include:

  • Rosemary is an evergreen. In some way, the plant “lasts” during the winter.  The idea of lasting could be used in poetry.
  • Rosemary has a scent. The scent is distinctive.  The idea of a distinctive aroma, whether of rosemary or not, could be used in a poem.
  • Rosemary is used in cooking. It could be used in a number of ways in food related poems.
  • Rosemary is a plant that has a name a person might have. A poet could see the artwork, and be inspired to write about someone named Rose or Mary or Rosemary.
