A blanket of seaweed was it’s presence,
that I found on the beach
and tried to spread over the sand.
It waved on a breeze coming in from the sea.
It was light to me, colour and weight,
more friend than ever friendship was
it covered me, sheltered me for a moment
but as the wind turned east,
getting colder, stronger,
I was not strong enough.
I let it slip out of my hand, it went
somewhere far across the water,
it disappeared. It was your love.
