you are a breathing thing

Hi friend. :)

I’ve been playing with abstract art and reading Nayyirah Waheed poetry.

This poem by her:

be softer with you.
you are a breathing thing.
a memory to someone.
a home to a life.

touched me so much this week and thought it would possible speak to you too.

So I added her poem to my latest painting, I loved adding the birdie (after it was first and for a while mostly abstract) and Nayyirah’s beautiful words.

How are you ‘soft with you’? And how can you maintain that?
I love the idea that we are ‘home to a life’. Isn’t that just so beautiful?

May you be soft with you.
