This is an artwork of another apple. It is of another apple, because there has already been artworks of apples on this blog. This is another one. This artwork isn’t based off of a real apple, rather it was just imagined.
Here’s a poem inspired by this artwork:
The apple screamed,
after it learned,
what cider was made of.
This is a photograph of an elephant yam plant. Here is a poem inspired by it:
you can see,
the brains are growing,
the internet wasn’t working,
so this post was late,
such is life,
when blog posts aren’t prescheduled
Ripping its body in two,
she ate one half,
and laughed with glee –
a child eating gummy worms.
When at the soft serve dispenser,
choose one flavor,
or the other,
but not the combination,
for it tastes,
This is an artwork of three fruit. It is of a mandarin orange, on top of a banana, on top of a mango. The idea was to have a little twist on the standard fruit still life. The artwork started out as a colored pencil drawing and was then computer altered.
This artwork can inspire poetry. Here is a poem inspired by it:
Great heights can be reached,
standing on the shoulders of others –
just make sure,
you get their permission first,
it could sort of be awkward.
Today’s poetry topic idea is accidents.
Accidents could be viewed in different ways and from different perspectives.
Accidents could be major things, such as car accidents, or minor things, such as spilling a drink.
Accidents could be viewed from the person who commits the accident, or, if there is one, from the person who is the recipient of it.
Looking at accidents, one could look at issues, such as responsibility, accountability, intention, apology and guilt.
Accidents could be viewed as having negative consequences (e.g. a car accident) or positive consequences (e.g. if not for some accident, the couple would never have met).
Here is an accident related poem:
Cutting the hair,
the guard slipped …
does anyone have a hat?
an awful lot of work,
to dig a lake,
with a teaspoon.
Today’s poetry topic idea is The Finch. The Finch is a science fiction novel about two friends and their flying ship written by M. Sakran. You can read the entire novel from www.msakran.com/the-finch.html. One chapter was posted each week and the last chapter was posted yesterday.
A novel can be a very broad start for writing poetry. There are so many aspects and details in a novel that numerous poems could be written. The Finch is about friendship, flying ships and adventure. Lots of ideas can come from it.
Here are some poems inspired by the novel:
Get ready for a bad day.
That’s not good.
Wait till Hugo comes.
would like you to fill out this form,
… and these twelve others.
What kind of name is that?
Now, Yellow Jacket – there’s a cool name.
So the ship is dented,
and probably can’t fly –
at least it’s right-side up.
when they learned,
what was really in,
