Unfortunately, Zigyasa and Kashaf weren’t able to join this time at our collaboration for Nurture, a wonderful topic chosen by Emily. Grateful and happy Manuel was able to step in at the last minute and also excited and honored Jonathan accepted our invitation to create a piece of art for The Strix.

We hope you will enjoy these pieces of art, as much as we feel during the creation process.

Nurture ~ Haiku

your tender hands touch

love breaks walls, defense crumbles

my heart’s scars soften

Nurture

How bleak and empty looks the future
Without your tender, loving nurture
That you pour out upon me so freely
Like mother with bade in her fine arms
Keeping it soundly safe from all harms
Such that I cannot fail to be thankful
And in your loving presence gleeful
For the compassion you give liberally
And in your nurture my nature is full
To be what I was always meant to be
Yes . . .
How bleak and empty looks the future
Without your tender, loving nurture

Nurture

To feed and protect,
No neglect.
Beyond nurturing one’s offspring,
Completely unstring.

Encourage and support,
Visions distort?
During and after our development,
No evidence of detriment.

Bring up, train and even educate;
Taught to be immune to hate.
Above and below nourishment,
Positivity, flourishing.

Breeding, upbringing;
Are your ears ringing?
Not yet?!!!
Let us try again; Play the cassette!!!

All beautiful species within
NURTURE
All negativity with love
Filter and absorb
The rain
Sprinkle

  1. Wonderful collaboration on the sensitively beautiful topic of nurture. It is, indeed, an honor to be part of such a colorful, artistic tapestry! Blessings to one and all!

  2. A wonderful topic indeed, particularly as Spring is arriving (fingers crossed) in the northern hemisphere but also wonderfully carried off by all 🙂

Love to connect with my neighbors on our globe :-)
