A photograph to inspire poetry: a water drop on clover

a water drop on clover

Above is a photograph of a water drop on clover.  It can inspire poetry.  Some ideas include poems about:

  • Thirst.  A poet could see the water drop and think of a person in a situation where they had little water.  A poet could write about that person being thirsty.
  •  

  • Singularity.  There is one water drop alone on the clover.  A poet could see that and apply the idea to situations in life.  They could write about people who are unique or alone.
  •  

  • Precariousness.  The water drop is precarious.  It could easily fall off or evaporate.  A poet could use the idea of precariousness in a poem.
  •  

  • Temporary.  This water drop is temporary.  A poet could write about people in temporary conditions.
  •  

  • Support.  The clover is supporting the water drop, but water, in part, supports the clover, although in a different sense.  A poet could write about support in a poem.
