Above is an artwork of a hand holding an apple. It can inspire poetry. A poet could write about:
- Picking fruit. A poet could examine things like an individual picking fruit from their own tree, or they could look at something like farm labor.
- A person handing a piece of fruit to someone else. This idea could be applied to many contexts. As an example, a poet could write about someone handing someone else a piece of fruit at a food pantry.
- Someone looking at an apple. A poet could examine different things the person might be thinking about. An example might be the color of the apple reminds the person of something.
- A person about to do something with an apple. They might be making an apple pie or they might be turning it into juice.
- A person with a disability. An example might be writing about a person that has trouble using their hand, and holding things, like an apple, might be part of the therapy they are going through. As another example, a poet might write about a person who lost the use of their hand and finally regained the ability to hold something, like an apple. A poet could write about that moment.
Here is an example poem:
After staring at the apple,
for ten minutes,
he gave up.
looks so easy,
in the movies.
