Artwork to inspire poetry: A bug on a wall

A bug on a wall artwork

On December 1, 2014 there was a blog post on this blog called A photograph to inspire poetry: A bug on a wall.  In that blog post, there was a photograph of a bug on a wall.  It can be seen in the post and on the Photographs and Artwork page.  This artwork, is a computer altered pen drawing of that bug.

This artwork can inspire poetry.  Like was done with the photograph, it could inspire a poem about giant bugs and 1950s sci-fi.  Other ideas might be:

  • nature related poems about the bug
  • some condition the bug might cause to something that might touch it
  • the bug’s perspective due to its size (relatively small or large depending on point of view)
  • a poem about climbing (the bug was climbing on a wall)
