kiss from the terril

Kiss from the terril (slag heap) is a blank postcard to bury in the soil of this particular ground and environment, which is the result of the industrial history in the north of France.
A poetic image or sentence appears telling stories of this quite young landscape and ecosystem, the mountains of the North.
