Unintentional Hearts

heart shaped stone

I found a piece of heart-shaped chocolate

that lacked heart-shaped intent,

an accident of manufacturing

like the heart-shaped stones my friend collects

are accidents of weathering.


I find my own heart changing shape

polished by exposure from the seasons of my years.

Constancy is a barren desert;

I prefer evolving fate,

the unintentional change that melts my heart.

    1. That is such a lovely idea. I do have a friend who collects heart shaped stones and I now find myself looking for them to bring back as gifts from my travels. Now you have given me a kind reminder every time I stumble upon one. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.
