Write A Poem Inspired By A Picture

Pictspiration! Try Photo-Inspired Poetry

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Look through your phone, a magazine, or a website to find a picture that inspires you to write. It could be a picture of a landscape, an activity, a building, people, etc. Take a moment to observe everything about the picture. Write down as many words as you can to describe what you see. Then write down words that describe how it makes you feel. What emotions come to mind? If the photo is not your own, are their connections you can make to your own life? If so, write them down. Once you’ve brainstormed, you’ll be able to use your ideas to begin writing the poem. Brainstorming:
  • Fall
  • Red, yellow, green
  • Path
  • Trees/woods
  • Serenity
  • Hope
  • Journey
Poem: The crisp air surrounds my nose. As the leaves crunch under my toes. The world is still As nature gives me my fill Of quiet days. If only like this it could stay.
