I honestly do not know what the essence of humanity is... I always see hate and violence, when I know through all the fibers of my body that it is all about love, acceptation, and respect of the Other who is us -- you and me and all of us humans.

—Gilles d'Aymery (e-mail to the author, December 2011).


(Swans - January 16, 2012)  

and my friend paolo said

"tutto ciò che esiste è creatura"

all that exists is creature

tot ceea ce există e creatură

todo lo que existe es creatura

konoyoni arumono mina ikimono

alles was existiert, schoepfung ist

tudo aquilo que existe é criatura

tout ce qui existe est créature


a blade of grass

also a little shell of cicada



The author thanks Afrodita Cionchin (Romanian translation), Olga Milazzo (Spanish translation), Kazue Daikoku (Japanese translation), Silvia Dello Russo (French and German translation), Graciela Muller Pozzebon (Portuguese translation).
