La Cheminée

Haute-Savoie, France

Jun 2019


From early June to October 

she lives high up in the mountains 

on the Chaines des Aravis

above the Col des Annes, with only a few

farms, a cascade of cows fanning

over the pastures. She serves meals

in her small restaurant, i an old sweatshirt,

but dressed in smiles as she swishes

from her kitchen to the tables, she who 

has worked there for 40 years, beginning 

at the age of 13 when her grandfather

owned the farm…


(a poetry that we discovered in the Restaurant La Cheminée in Col des Annes, ndr)
