Il pleure dans mon coeur

July 10, 2009 § Leave a comment

Il pleure dans mon coeur
Comme il pleut sur la ville.
Quelle est cette langueur
Qui pénêtre mon coeur? 

O bruit doux de la pluie
Par terre et sur les toits! 
Pour un coeur qui s’ennuie, 
O le chant de la pluie! 

Il pleure sans raison
Dans ce coeur qui s’écoeure.
Quoi! nulle trahison? 
Ce deuil est sans raison.

C’est bien la pire peine
De ne savoir pourquoi, 
Sans amour et sans haine, 
Mon coeur a tant de peine

 – Paul Verlaine

Mtsiliza, Malawi – E & K orphanage school

Calloused hands and rudimentary shovels dig the latrines and foundations so people have a place to learn their ABCs. Basic needs. Brick by brick.

Mtsiliza nightfall

“Make it home by nightfall” he says. We are escorted through the fading light. 9pm curfew hounds our steps. The neighbourhood watch is unforgiving apparently…. They guard against the crime of ‘vagabonding’ and enforce it with wooden planks stuck through with rusty nails.

The Warm Heart

Mtsiliza, Malawi – aka “the warm heart of Africa”, with good reason.

Day 1 working at the E&K orphanage school. Mosquito nets, bucket showers, cool nights, warm days and the red, red earth.
