About atreewalker

It was a warm spring morning in the olive grove. The breeze was gentle, the air was fragrant, the time stood still. High grass, sprinkled with colourful small-headed flowers, was gently tickling my knees. Poppies were about to splash their intense red on the antic ruins. 'Look how beautiful it is all over', I whispered to the olive trees, 'a perfect time for a stroll.' I slipped my fingers into the open palms at the end of their branches and I took them for a walk.

daylong retreat


silent day

silence around

the sheep bells


mindful walk

of the figue tree leaves


cool air

where the tear ran down


sound of one ripe olive

hitting the ground

Barking dogs
Falling asleep
With his feet in my hand


Alone in a church
A burp
Nicely resonates

A l’orée de l’ombre

Sucré le bruit
Des feuilles du cerisier
Fin août
