Blush of First Love

Oh for the Sweetness of Young Love.
Do you remember? I most certainly do!
~~~~~~
 
~~~~~~
If only the Innocence and the Blush
of that first Young Love
Would have stayed present
in my Life.
~~~~~~
 
~~~~~~
T’is a shame Life’s struggles
tarnished that Sweetness of Young Love,
And how different Life would be
if that Blush would have stayed with me.
~~~~~~
 
If only …

    1. Sad yes? That it did not stay? Life has a way of stealing such joys of ours … and I don’t know about you, but I do all I can to take back those joys! Love to you, Lorrie!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

    1. These flowers really do “speak” to me, as you are now seeing. I haven’t thought of my first Love in years, yet this Rose pulled it out of me. The slight pink behind the Rose itself reminded me of the flush of innocence on my face in my younger days. Thank you for your loving words to me. They are greatly cherished. (((HUGS))) Amy

  2. It is amazing to me that you can see past the “flower” to the “soul” in each rose. Thank you so much for sharing your incredible gift! Love you, Phyl 🙂

    1. OH, Phyl, you are so very welcome!! I am thrilled to do this, for in the sharing, I radiate out more Love, more Magic, and perhaps give the viewer a moment to reflect that there is more to Life then what most see. I am able to connect with Mother, and yes, it is a Gift, one that I cherish and realize how very privileged I really am. May you have a wonderful weekend, my friend. Love, Amy (PS I rescued you from my spam …. grrrrrr……)

  3. It’s true that first love makes our hearts sing. We often long for the return of first love. It is still there, deepened by the layers of wisdom gained through the hard fought struggles of our lives. Hang in there! Your photos are gorgeous!!

    1. Oh my goodness, I really thank you for your loving words to me! This Rose really did remind me that the blush is still there, and the MORE I interact with Nature and my camera, the more I shall find that innocence. I’m pretty sure that Love shines through my work. Now I focus on maintaining that “feeling” throughout every area of my life!! A work in progress …. (((HUGS))) Amy

    1. Dear friend, life of late has dealt some pretty hard punches leaving me depleted. Yet, this too shall pass and yes, I will find my blush again. I do every time I am behind my camera. I do I do. That is my Love Affair I post here, mine with Mother. Your concern really touched my Heart, Audrey, and I really want you to know that you did. Thank you for your kindness to me.

    1. She is a tiny one too, YellowCable, which you really don’t see because of my super closeup of Her. I had to take it in manual shooting mode because of the closeness of the camera, and because of the color …. Automatic would not focus. She did come out gorgeous. Thank you for your comment. Yes, a little bit of sadness, yet, I will get my blush back somehow. I’ve had a tough summer. I am just today feeling my optimism coming back. OH for the JOY!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

  4. It’s so sad to look back to when you were first in love and realise that you do not feel like that any more. Although a stressful and in many ways sad experience, it was utterly unique and unlike anything I have ever known. I am glad it happened to me 🙂

    1. Thank you, Linda. I had not thought of my first Love in a very long time, yet when I stopped and allowed this Rose to “speak” to me, this is what came to the surface. I want that blush back and through my JOY in my photography, that is exactly what I am doing! AND talking to you! (((HUGS))) Amy

    1. Lorrie, my mind was blown away as well when I saw Uncle Tree’s post. I cried for the beauty he created with my images. Uncle Tree loves my work, and I have a feeling he may be using more of my images to match his words. Maybe or maybe not. We will see what the Wind blows. Hope your day is just as sunny as mine is!!! Love, Amy

      2. Yes, Uncle Tree makes you think all right. I’ve been going over to his site reading again what he wrote. Deep thoughts which only in turn make me reflect. Glad you righted the ship. I say good for you! Have a great Monday, friend!!! I am trying to catch up with all the comments from Sunday. By the time Sunday came to a close I didn’t know which end was up or down. Just too much in one day. Love, Amy
