Artwork to inspire poetry: a foot holding a pen

a foot holding a pen

Above is an artwork of a foot holding a pen.  It can inspire poetry.  A poet could write about:

  • A person with a disability who writes using their foot.

  • Something being out of place (a pen might more commonly be in a hand, rather than a foot).

  • A metaphor relating walking to expression.

  • Feet, walking, or running.

  • Travel (the pen with a foot being a metaphor for writing about a journey).

Here is an example poem:

Not knowing of his accident,
and not meaning to be cruel,
but being so,
she exclaimed as she saw what he wrote,
did you write this with your foot?”
