Artwork to inspire poetry: Seeded half of a Roma tomato

Seeded half of a Roma tomato

This artwork is of a seeded half of a Roma tomato.  It was done in colored pencil and then scanned.  There was a little bit of computer alteration to correct a spot.

This artwork can inspire poetry.  Here are some ideas:

  • A poet might think of food and thinking of using the tomato in recipes or stuffing it. A poet could write about that.
  •  

  • A poet might write about infertility.
  •  

  • A poet might see this tomato as being prepared and might write about preparation.
  •  

  • A poet might think the seeded tomato reminds them of a boat and write about boats.
