Above is a photograph of opening loquat flowers. The final flower looks very different than the beginning and middle stages. This idea can inspire poetry. Here is an example poem:
drawing an outline
according to the instructions
this will look like a flower
complete with shading and detail
when this is done
This photograph is either unripe loquat fruit, or despite their appearance, loquat flowers that have not opened. There is a bit of uncertainty.
In terms of poetic inspiration, this photograph, whatever it may eventually be, can inspire poetry in a number of ways:
- A poet could write about the uncertainty of what is here. They could take that idea and apply it other situations in a poem.
- A poet could write a poem with a scene with the fruit, for example a poem with a scene of people preparing the fruit in a kitchen
- A poet could see that, at whatever stage this is, it is not ripe fruit. A poet could take that idea and write a poem about things that are not ready.
- A poet could write a poem about fruit picking.
