senryu – shattered dreams = les rêves brisés = sogni rotti





shattered dreams
shattered mirror
shattered soul

les rêves brisés
le miroir cassé
l'âme brisée

sogni rotti
lo specchio rotto
l'anima rotta

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.

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):
