A photograph to inspire poetry: cone shaped flowers

cone shaped flowers

Above is a photograph of cone shaped flowers (their name is unknown to M. Sakran).  It can inspire poetry.  For example, a poet could write about:

  • Three people, one an adult and two children.
  •  

  • The idea of going from muted to bright, as inspired by the color change of the central flower.
  •  

  • The idea of being different, inspired by the idea that these three flowers don’t have a “typical” flower shape.
  •  

  • Something to do with cones, for example ice cream cones or traffic cones.

As an example, here is a poem inspired by this photograph:

Is standing out,
something good,
or something bad?

The adages,
either way,
have been heard.

Yet,
in reality,
things are not adages,
there is,
in fact,
in reality,
reality.

To stand out,
amongst the others,
is something whose effect,
is clear.

One will know,
when they find themselves,
standing in the rain,
or in the sun.
