Artwork to inspire poetry: box, can, and jar

box, can, and jar

Above is an artwork of a box, can, and jar.  The three items are stacked on top of each other.

This artwork can inspire poetry.  A poet could write about a number of things.  A poet could write about:

  • Recipes.

  • Pantry food items.

  • Collecting food for the hungry.

  • Making food from boxes, cans, and jars.

  • Stacking things.

  • Balance.

  • Containers.

Here is a poem inspired by the artwork:

as the third acrobat
climbed to the top of the group
they all began to reconsider
if this was a good idea
