What would the world be, once bereft
Of wet and of wildness? Let them be left,
O Let them be left, wildness and wet:
Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.
~Gerard Manley Hopkins,  Inversnaid

I’ve always identified with weeds more than cultivated blooms.  I tend to be fluffy, spread out where I’m not necessarily wanted or needed, and seem to be resilient through drought or flood.  Their persistence helps me let them be.  EPG
