african proverb...














to love someone
who does not love you
is like shaking a tree
to make dew drops fall

And sometimes you shake the tree so hard it falls on you. Well at least in my experience :)

I love that quote...but does it love me back? ;) Seriously, though, it is a great quote. And a beautiful image to go with it.

Intriguing photo! Love it! That's why we love to love and not love for a response. The dew drops eventually turn to raindrops and we still appreciate it when they do come...

I love the photo ..

For some reason, the proverb is not making sense to me. Will sleep on it. :)

Oh, my...such words, such heart-shaking words! Unrequited love stings... But hopefully the dew drops will fall and soothe... Lovely post, Se'Lah :o) Happy Days ((HUGS))
