senryu – if a single tear = si une seule larme


senryu – if a single tear = si une seule larme






if a single tear
could drown the world's sorrows
I'd shed torrents

si une seule larme
noit la misère du monde
j'en verse des torrents

basé sur ce beau poème par par Naima Bourhim

Si une larme de mes yeux tomber...
Pouvait noyer la misère dans le monde...
J'en verserai des torrents pour l'inonder . 

Translated into English:

If one tear falling from my eyes could drown the world's sorrows I would shed torrents to drown them.

why say?
you are in our prayers – say
we are the light

pourquoi dire ?
vous êtes dans nos prières - dites
nous sommes la lumière

To my mind, there are really no religions, there is only God and ourselves. So we do not need to pray, because we are in essence prayer. To love God and to love one another is the only thing that matters.

Selon moi, il n'y a pas de religions, il y a seulement Dieu et nous-mêmes. Donc nous n'avons pas besoin de prier, parce que nous sommes essentiellement la prière. La seule chose qui compte, c'est d'aimer Dieu et les uns les autres.

You may have fallen prey


You may have fallen prey




for Willem Tensen

You may have fallen prey to such a fate
as only we imagine and cannot share;
we know your soul shall never abrogate 
her duty to her God in every prayer
you offer up to Him alone with all
you fairest friends and closest kin alike
according to your heart's most ardent call
to rally yourself against this dire strike,
this awful blow to you and yours you know
you never deserved in your faintest dreams,
this unexpected, all too nasty blow
which only love, yours and our Lord's redeems.
Your injury is also ours to bear
if only we'll bear the cross you lightly share.

This is one of the vilest instances of animal cruelty I have ever seen. The pig tied his severely injured 9 month old puppy in a plastic bag and tossed her in the garbage. Thank God the poor wee tyke was saved and love was showered on him. I strongly urge everyone to comment on this appalling act! Please visit this site, I love my dogs so much, for the terrible story with a sweet ending (and you may weep as I did):
