Artwork to inspire poetry: Water droplets collage

Water droplets collage

This artwork is a collage made from a photograph of water droplets from a hose falling onto grass.  Part of the original photograph was cropped, the cropped section was duplicated many times and combined, and then the collection of them was cropped again.

A number of poetic inspirations could come from this artwork.  One idea would be the idea of patterns.  The collage has patterns, that for example in one section, go from left to right.  The idea of patterns could be used in poetry.  One idea would be to have a poetry form that had a pattern, for example, a repeating combination of syllable counts and rhymes.  Another idea would be to write a poem about patterns, for example, by writing about patterns that happen in nature, such as the bark on a tree.
