A prompt from http://julieisrael.wordpress.com/2013/04/27/write-the-next-line-using-the-word-part/  The first line is provided and the next line must include ‘part’ in some form.

The hours erased the stars and day peeled apart from night

I sang the moon, and partial to your heart

You danced us dawn, partners tripping through the light.
