Seaweed ~

Love is like seaweed;
even if you have pushed it away,
you will not prevent it
from coming back.

Nigerian Proverb

Ever drifting, drifting, drifting
On the shifting
Currents of the restless main;
Till in sheltered coves, and reaches
Of sandy beaches,
All have found repose again.

Excerpt from Seaweed
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


  1. Beautiful seaweed, and lovely poem.

    Years ago, when we were in Portland, Maine, we visited Longfellow's home and the little room where he wrote some of his poetry. There is a big statue of him in the town.

    love you
