Today's Prompt is Senryu Poetry + TWW

A Senryu is identical to the structure of a Haiku. It has three lines. The first line has 5 syllables. The second line has 7 syllables. The third line has 5 syllables again. It is primarily concerned with human nature. It is often humorous or satiric.
We are joining forces today with Three Words Wensday @  (one of our favorite places to join in on the prompts, ) This weeks words are...

Heart; noun: A hollow muscular organ that pumps the blood through the circulatory system by rhythmic contraction and dilation; one's mood or feeling; the central or innermost part of something; verb: Like very much, love.
Observe; verb: notice or perceive (something) and register it as being significant; watch (someone or something) carefully and attentively; fulfill or comply with (a social, legal, ethical, or religious obligation).
