Tree Eyes

The trees on the Main Road have opened wide eyes. It is their way of letting us know that they watch us everyday, as we expend a lot of energy fooling around without purpose, appearing to be busy as we carry plastic bags full of non-sense shopping… The trees grow out of concrete and suffer the offence of cars, the noise of the tram, the whip of the power lines, the whole spectacle of a busy road… They would like to be somewhere else, part of a quiet forest, but cannot leave. They have resigned to open wide eyes, to let us know that they keep watch. A zany Romanian artist named Tzuculescu, spent years of his life painting mysterious wide-eyed trees. From the afterlife, he is still watching through the eyes of his trees.
