To You, Our Lady of life

The distinct

You bridge the hearts of our world

You deceive the sun not to set

to offer a heavenly embrace

Generously you endure the pain


You dominate

bright horizons

Your tears become earth’s breath

Your hands are solid rocks

You scatter clouds in your passage

Oh, our only, last hope…



Incarnation Of Love



A touch of unselfish affection

Fluttering of knightly greatness

Vastness of mental beauty

You enliven vague memories

encourage charity events

change the flow of time,

of the historical error

You generously teach the universe

magnetize sea treasures

magically unlock the chests of the earth

You tirelessly endure the coming trials and tribulations

bury your wishes smiling

Motherly gaze illuminates the crowds

Builds castles

Gives vital energy

Freezes underground sighs

Defeats cunning enemies…


Blessed be Your name…





You are trapped

Suffering because of sadness

You are passionate about the chills of the night silence

purified in the light of day

You heroically fight to oppose, to hold on

The supports no longer help you

They also fail to lure your cellular being

The human being, underperforms

For how much longer?

You wonder again

And you are confused

Take refuge in the self-sarcasm of the moment

Science fiction script for a short film

The protagonist, an endangered species,

with narcissism mocks his tragic fate
