Objects and connections

Stuck for an idea? Here's one. Find an object  and write everything you can about it - colour, texture, size, what it's for/purpose - and see where it leads. You may find you go off to 'related places' using connections with the object. That's okay. Spend about ten minutes or so (no more than 20mins) and then use what you have written to form a poem. You might even get a story out of it!  The object you use doesn't matter. It could be a book, clock, balloon, Tshirt, TV, sofa, ring, mug, tea towel, bed, photo or whatever. The main thing is to write down whatever you know about this object.  Try it. Post your results on here if you like or just tell me how you got on.
