While the water boils, life toils. Dishes are washed, checkbooks are balanced and plans are discussed.

While the water boils, life lulls. Glances are stolen, necks are hugged. Embraces linger.

While the water boils, life ponders. Questions are asked, options discussed and dreams are dreamed.

While the water boils, life moves. Children grow. Mothers age. Friends leave.

While the water boils, life taunts. Thoughts are stifled, smiles forced, dreams delayed.

While the water boils, life nurtures. Spaghetti is stirred, spices bloom, sauce thickens.

While the water boils, life beckons. New friends knock, doors slam and giggles echo.

While the water boils.
