I think it's time to get musically inspired again. So take the first line of any song you like and use it as the first line of your poem or prose.
Include the song and artist you use - both for giving credit where it's due and because I like seeing what everybody is listening to :)
Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead
A green plastic watering can
Lies abandoned in the garden -
Full of acid rainwater now,
As worthless as a rusted plough.
The weeds have claimed it as their own,
Like your coffin will claim your bones.
From the curtained kitchen window
Fading eyes think of seeds to sow,
While fingers stiffened by the years
Yearn to touch soil instead of tears.
But spring has been lost to them both,
Overtaken by winter's growth.
So the garden slowly decays
While she dreams of her summer days.
