Write a story from the point of view of something we view as non-sentient. Make our actions as humans meaningless or non-important to the object. Create a culture for these objects that we are completely unaware of.
Here is a short example:
Phase transitions of water (solid, liquid, gas) could be a life cycle. Freezing could be a death, liquid could be life, steam could be spirituality.
The same could be done for things like stars, dirt, light, or music.
