Poetry for Valentine’s Day – Umami for the Soul

Fiona Houston harvesting seaweed

Umami for the Soul: an Ode to Natural Women 

Oh, Queen of the Shoreline,

My Heart’s delight

Weaving through the rocks and dunes,

Armed with knife and old herring basket

to reach your sea spray domain,

The tideline and the delicate dulse glistening in the cold clear sea.
