A Dozen Roses, February 14th 2012
A single stem, a dozen dreams, sent with love of a secret heart.Like love, when a dozen roses arrives at your door it excites you with its surprise, the youthful trance that can only make you smile like a lovesick teenager. Each day as you walk past and touch them to be sure that their beauty is real and you smile with that touch of appreciation. Each day they grow a little older, each day time passes a little more and, so quickly, each day they fade a little more. Until the time has come and we must let them go but we hold in our hearts the memories and the gift they gave us and be thankful for the precious little time they shared there perfect beauty with us. Like the rose, love grows and flourishes over time but it is how we hold it in our hearts and appreciate this that makes it last a lifetime. A photo is capturing a second in time and holding it in its perfection forever. And like the roses in these photos, I hold the love that came in a dozen dreams, in my heart forever.
