A photograph to inspire poetry: dead curly tendril of a grape vine

dead curly tendril of a grape vine

Above is a photograph of a dead curly tendril of a grape vine.  The tendril is dead, but the vine is still alive in its roots.

This photograph can inspire poetry.  Here is a poem inspired by it:

the curls of her hair
seemed to spell a word
as the light reflected off
and the shadows moved about
