Kerry included lovely photos by three talented Toads members, Kenia Cris, Ellen Wilson and Susie Clevenger, for our inspiration.
It wasn't until I looked at Ella's photo along with Susie's that I felt able to respond to this challenge. This stanza form, which had defeated me during previous attempts Saturday evening, seemed very much suited to the two photos together.

the old key for the red door
unlocks hearts, they say,
when lovers kiss with open
minds, hoping for the day
on which they maypledge their troth forevermore
