Three houses

And what do these three little white houses do on a red branch or on the side of a hill? They are joined and clenched against each other; houses of very thin expectations oriented towards the light as far as they can.

Maybe a few carefree paper mice dance in the three attics? Below, white bouquets on the tables enlighten the discreet embrasures.

Fragile image in view of the violence of this world, in this bluish mist of memory, it advances discreetly towards this thing coming from the spirit that flinches and regains its momentum.

Trois maisons (original version)

Et que font ces trois petites maisons blanches sur une branche rouge ou sur le flanc d’une colline ? Elles sont jointes et se serrent l’une contre l’autre ; maisons d’attentes très minces orientées vers la lumière comme elles peuvent.

Peut-être que quelques souris de papier insouciantes dansent dans les trois greniers ? Plus bas, de blancs bouquets sur les tables éclairent les discrètes embrasures.

Image fragile devant la violence de ce monde, dans cette brume bleutée de la mémoire, elle avance à pas de loup cette chose venue de l’esprit qui flanche et reprend son élan.
