Nesting Fish


"Make your nest truly a beautiful home,
never  ask why the task, and for whom."  AVR

Nesting Tilapia in acrylic by AVR 2011

Make a nest for your bride, make it true, 
An altar to knot your vows;
Make a nursery and a sanctuary, too
Safe from fangs and jaws. 

Abode for the homeless and those in grief,
A stopover for the weary guest, 
A fort ensconced among rocks and reefs
To hold and withstand any test.

Build a nest, but not of the proud bower bird,
Lavish but only in courtship;
Don't be like the marauding salmon in herd,
Returning only after a long trip.

Make your nest truly a beautiful home,
And none in your brood shall ever want;
Never shall you ask why the task, and for whom;   
In life's drama, this is your part. ~
