A photograph to inspire poetry: A flower with leaves

A flower with leaves

This is a photograph of a flower.  There are a couple of interesting aspects here.  First, the flower’s petals (presumably those are what the pink items are) are separated, they are not close together, as would be seen in something like a rose.  Second, the leaves on the plant are a mixture of red and green.  This is different from plants that generally have green leaves.

This photograph can inspire poetry from its interesting aspects.  Some ideas include:

  • A Christmas poem, as inspired by the red and green leaves
  • A poem about being different, as inspired by either the leaves or the petals
  • A poem about things that are separated, but not necessarily in a negative sense, as inspired by the petals
