Haiku my Heart

Inner Nurturer
Sacred Inner Mother Mine
Ground of my Being

With this SoulCollage card I am joining in Haiku my Heart.  For more details and instructions on Fridays' Haku please visit

SoulCollage is a wonderful technique of collaging aspects of self, archetypes, roles and more and a powerful tool for self-reflection and contemplation.  I made this card from magazine images - you cannot get much simpler than that!  On the left is a beautiful purple Milk Thistle flower, also known as Holy Thistle, St Mary's Thistle and Marian Thistle.  The ancients used to believe that the white markings on the leaves are the milk spilt by Mother Mary when nursing her son.

May you be supported and nourished by your own Inner Nurturer!
