  • A great sadness

    and weight hangs over this day.






    More tears.

    Nature brings flowers

    to send to the lost ones,

    to send to their families,

    to send to the murderers,

    saying, "look, we survive,

    we still love, we still remember,"

    to send to us, to all of us,

    a great sadness

    deserves great beauty,

    needs great love.
