Je m’appelle la Terre


Je m’appelle la Terre .

Je n’ai créé aucune frontière, ni de drapeaux multicolores qui séparent les nations,

ni de chants patriotiques qui attisent la haine . J’offre mes rivières,

The Lie said to the Truth



The Lie said to the Truth, "Let's take a bath together, the well water is very nice.

"Black Cherries" by W.S. Merwin



Late in May as the light lengthens
toward summer the young goldfinches
flutter down through the day for the first time
to find themselves among fallen petals
cradling their day’s colors in the day’s shadows
of the garden beside the old house

"A bit of earth"


“A bit of earth,
She wants a little bit of earth.
She'll plant some seeds.

Out of the woods


Let’s never be “out of the woods”
