Love is mostly romanticized as an emotion that suddenly strikes us, stimulating both our hearts and minds and we fall (or rise) in love as sparks fly and there is definite chemistry between the two people.
But love can also be a slow ignition, that, like the crescendo of a symphony builds up gradually till it reaches its apex, the blossoming of true love.
Whatever way you love, one thing is certain, falling out of love is easy too, and unlike the fairytales we grew up reading and watching, it is not always a happily ever after ending and the true test of love is when there are tough circumstances; either financial, physical, or mental.
Sometimes people grow apart as they grow older, their interests change and so do their preferences, where to live, and how to live, they start to differ on all major decisions in life and the bond weakens.
So is love just a fairy dream of youth that dissolves as we grow older?
I think the way we love should change with time and age, the passion should be mixed with wisdom and understanding so that the natural process of growth, accommodates all the ways we differ from each other in our older selves to keep the spark alive!
Many people cannot see what’s right in front of their eyes.
The gift of vision is indeed a great gift. Vision is when you see beyond what is visible. Vision is when you see the possibilities in a given situation. Not everyone can be a great visionary, but with thought and contemplation, we can develop the gift of envisioning possibilities in the obvious.
I host a weekly challenge, What do you see!
When I read the responses from many different bloggers, this saying makes perfect sense to me. Looking at the same image, everyone sees something different. How we think, and how we perceive makes all the difference in what we see!
You can write a post on your blog and create a pingback to link to the original post.
Write an original story, poem or a caption.
There is no limit to words or format but keep it family-friendly.
If you post a response before next Sunday, I will be able to add it to my roundup post.
I will do a round-up next Sunday before the next Prompt is posted.
It is always helpful if you can give your post/story/poem a title.
Paste a link of your post in the comments section so that I don’t miss anyone in the roundup post.

Does this picture inspire you to write something?
For the visually challenged reader, the image shows the sun rising between two hills. In the front is a valley. One can see concentric circles in the valley made of green vegetation and a pile of black stones in their center.
