Above is an artwork of a piece of an orange bell pepper. It shows the part of the fruit a person would eat, the pith and two seeds near the top. This artwork can inspire poetry. As some ideas, a poet could write about
- The idea of identification. (Is a bell pepper a fruit, a vegetable, a berry, a pepper or a chili?)
- The idea of acceptability (part of the fruit is eaten, but part is thrown away).
- The idea of focus. Most of the artwork is taken up by the pith. This may seem to be an unusual focus. A poet could apply the idea of what is focused on to life situations.
Here is an example poem:
