A photograph to inspire poetry: a yellow flower

a yellow flower

This is a photograph of a yellow flower.  Some poetry ideas that can come from it include poems about:

  • Conformity/Standing out – this flower, in the photograph, is surrounded primarily by uniform grass. The flower is not conforming and is standing out.  This idea could be applied to a person in a poem.

  • Situations that involve flowers – some situations that involve flowers are: dates, weddings, hospitalization, and funerals. A poet could write about one of these situations or others.

  • Status – this flower might be considered by some to be a weed. A poet could write poems about the status people have as prescribed by others.
