A photograph to inspire poetry: lemon flower

lemon flower

Above is a photograph of a lemon flower.  It can inspire poetry.  A poet could write about:

  • The future. This flower in the future may become a lemon.  A poet could write about what something or someone might become in the future.
  •  

  • Potential. This flower has the potential to become a lemon.  A poet could write about a person or a thing that has potential.
  •  

  • Aroma. This flower has a sweet aroma.  A poet could write about scent and aroma.  They could apply the idea to flowers, perfume, food, and other things.
  •  

  • Temporariness. This flower is temporary. At some point the blossom will fade.  A poet could apply this idea to many situations.
  •  

  • Lemonade. This flower may turn into a lemon.  That lemon may be turned into lemonade.  A poet could write about this literally, metaphorically, or they could work with the expression about life giving a person lemons and that person making lemonade.  They could apply the idea to making the best of a situation.
