A photograph to inspire poetry: a small lemon that dropped from a tree

a small lemon that dropped from a tree

Above is a photograph of a small lemon that dropped from a tree.  The lemon is about the size of a penny.  It was months away from being full size when it fell.

This photograph can inspire poetry.  The general idea of something ending before it reaches its potential, could be applied to many different situations.

Here is an example poem that uses the idea:

they had three dates,
that went very well,
but she got the job offer,
and moved away

Poem Series: Time: the time is over

The time started,
the time passed,
the time is over.

You can look back,
and see what was.

You can look here,
and see what is.

You can’t look forward though,
because it hasn’t happened.

The time was spent,
and words of time were written,
the time was spent,
and words of time were read.

The time started,
with some direction,
but if the journey led,
to any particular place,
is something that can be known,
only after some time.

Thank you,
for your time.
