Laid Trou.jpg

“It's after crossing a sun-scorched plain that I meet them.

They don't stay by the side of the road because of the noise.

They inhabit wasteland, on a source known only to birds.

From a distance, they seem impenetrable. As soon as I approach, their trunks loosen. They welcome me with caution. I can rest, cool off, but I guess they are watching me and challenging each other.

They live in families, the oldest, in the middle and the small ones, those whose first leaves have just been born, everywhere, without ever straying.

They take a long time to die, and they keep the dead standing until they crumble to dust.

They flatter each other with their long branches, to make sure they're all there, like the blind. They gesticulate in anger if the wind dies to uproot them. But between them no dispute. They only whisper in agreement.

I feel they must be my real family. I will quickly forget the other. These trees will adopt me little by little, and to deserve it I am learning what to know:

I can already watch the passing clouds.

I also know how to stay still.

And I can almost be silent. "
