What Would The Neighbors Think?
Their beginnings were tumultuous,
like a swelling wrath-filled sea,
certain to create disaster.
All their neighbors scrambled
to make bets on the depths
of their down, then upbeat, caring:
how rotten it must be at the core;
which one would be first to flee
that small charming cottage
they had leased at the shore.
But instead, steady passion enabled
them to find a key, the heartstone
they shared and a fire, mutually
tended, that could never be

Notes: There is no such word as heartstone, I made it up when this image was created. I am aware of the word hearthstone, and what it means. My sense of the image was that of a hearthstone of the heart.
