O’ the post it did have a large sign,
by the road on the side of the line,
o’ the sign it did say,
you who drive look away,
don’t read signs when you drive it’s not fine.
O’ el poste lo hizo haber una señal grande,
cerca la calle en el lado de la línea,
o’ la señal lo hizo decir,
ustedes que conducen miran lejos,
no leen señales cuando ustedes conducen lo no es buen.
Today’s poetry topic idea is hunger. Here are some ways to use it in poetry:
- A poet could write about a momentary hunger for food. Think of an experience where a person misses a meal. Think of the sensation of hunger they might feel. This could be used in poetry.
- As an alternative, a poet could write about a sustained hunger for food. Think of a person living in poverty, who might only get one meal a day, or every other day.
- In another idea, a person could write about someone who is hungry in association with a purpose. For example, think of someone on a hunger strike.
- A person might also write about hunger associated with an eating disorder.
- Hunger could also be used metaphorically in poetry. A person could hunger for many things other than food. A poet could write about those.
Here is a humorous example poem using hunger:
M. Sakran is hungry,
(oh … remember the Scotch egg from yesterday)
but will not have breakfast,
until this post is done.
Oh why isn’t the post done yet?!
a hard-boiled egg,
wrapped in breakfast sausage,
rolled in bread crumbs,
They are wonderful.
You should have one (or two).
the oven preheats,
o’ the torment!
el horno es calentando,
¡o’ el tormento!
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.
