Artwork to inspire poetry: Pen and pencil rose

Pen and pencil rose

Above is an artwork of a rose.  The original was done with pen and pencil.  The outline, part of the leaves, and the petals were in pen.  The stem, leaves, and the part where the petals connect to the stem were shaded in pencil.  This artwork can inspire poetry.  Here is a poem inspired by it:

lifting the puppy
outside on a bright spring day
look at the flowers
