The forest

I walked through the forest,
I picked up some small stones from the path.

I studied each of them carefully, turned it around, over and over,
I determined the size, the shape, felt its weight in my hand.

I photographed it

and threw it back
into the forest.

La Forêt

Je marchais dans la forêt,
Je ramassais quelques cailloux du chemin.

J’étudiais chacun d’entre eux attentivement, les retournant, encore et encore.
Je déterminais la taille, sa forme, sentais son poids dans ma main.

Je le photographiais

et le rejetai
dans la forêt.
