Hello poets and poetry lovers! As of yesterday, my college sweetheart and I have been married 23 years. We bonded over a love of coffee (yes, before I started studying traditional Japanese tea ceremony I was an avid coffee drinker - my dark roasted secret is out). We met at our college's medieval reenactment society, appropriately called That Medieval Thing and further bonded over our enjoyment of classic golden age Hollywood movies. He introduced me to The Quiet Man with John Wayne, and 1935's Zorro.
We are both also huge fans of Golden Age cartoon shorts, especially Looney Tunes. I was the one who talked his ear off about different animators, and the Man of 1000 Voices, Mel Blanc.
Do you have an interest you bonded over with a beloved? Is there an interest any potential lovers must have if they're going to last longer than an evening? Feel free to write about that, or whatever else hits your fancy (new or old is fine). Don't forget to see what your fellow poets have created this week. If you like something, don't keep it to yourself. Conversation and constructive feedback in the comments section is always welcome.
