Artwork to inspire poetry: Juniper tips

Juniper tips

The artwork above is of juniper tips.  It can inspire poetry.  Here are some ideas:

  • Juniper is an evergreen, and yet the artwork above is mostly tones of gray with some pink, some lighter green and other colors. It is a depiction of something with a quality lost.  A poet could see this and be inspired to write poetry about people who lose some quality about themselves.  Maybe something changes in the person’s life, and they are not as they were before.  A poet could write about a variety of different things.

  • The artwork above shows just the tips of a juniper plant. It does not show the whole or even a significant portion of the plant.  The idea was to focus on a small aspect of the whole thing.  A poet could see this, and be inspired to focus on a small aspect of something.

  • The artwork above shows three main parts together, the small one on the left, the large one in the center and the smallest one on the right. A poet could see this and write about three things together and the contrasts between them.  A poet might write about people, buildings or other things.
