Artwork to inspire poetry: bread


This artwork is of bread.  It is whole wheat.  Before it was baked, it was made like a chain that made a circle.  A circle of dough was formed, then a length of dough was put through it and made into a circle, and this was repeated until there was one length left.  With the last length, the circle was completed.

This bread went through a process of individual parts and connections of parts.  The wheat plants were individual.  In the bag of flour the wheat was mixed.  When the dough ball was formed, the wheat was connected.  The wheat was then separated as lengths were formed.  The lengths were connected in a chain.  The chain became more connected as it baked.

This idea of individual parts and connections could be used in poetry.  There are many examples of this from machinery to relationships.  There are many instances where there is a flow of connection and separation.  Poems could be written using this idea as a basis.
