-FINALIST of Waterless World Competition


Jack played around the pool many times.

Races, jumps, Jack catched always the ball.

Morroe’s house was an happy home for Jack the dog.

Jack loved summer’s afternoons with the kids.

But now Boppampthon district is dry under Jack’s paws.

Jack didn’t seen his dog mouth in the pool’s reflection since years.

Indeed the pool is empty, Jack quit the game, and the kids the house.

The sun started to burn the ceramic tiles the next summer, and Jack’s memories in the same time.

Jack refused it, they were little mirrors of his past happiness.

So, Jack the player becames Jack the handydog.

Some old corrugated iron sheets were lying down in the back garden, Jack took them.

Jack’s past was too beautiful to be erased, the tiles should be protected.

This improvised space became Jack’s kingdom, he was waiting to play again.

One day, Jack’s suprise has been huge, water felt upon Morroe’s house, really rare event, but real.

Water felt, and flow on Jack’s super elaborated roof.

Millions of gutters bring water to meet the pool again, to refresh Jack’s memories.

At this time Jack closed the eyes and hear the voices of million drops on the tiles.
