十塊木頭,十個故事.

楊桃

Ten Woods, Ten Stories

-        Starfruit (Averrhoa carambola)

樹木在春夏生長快,秋冬生長慢,一年一年的生長會顯示在年輪上.在雨水多的年份,樹木生長快一點,在乾旱的年份又會慢一點.在向陽的方向會生長快一點,在背光的地方生長慢一點.在幼年時生長快一點,在老年時生長慢一點.一塊木頭,可以告訴你很多的故事.你願意聽一聽它說什麼嗎?

這棵樹有23個輪,也便有23年了.

Trees grow fast in spring and summer and then slower in autumn and winter.  The growth from year to year is displayed in visible rings – the growth rings. In years of adequate rain, trees grow faster; in years of drought, they grow slower.  They grow faster when facing the sun and then slower when they are backlit.  They grow faster in early years and get slower as time goes by.  A piece of wood can tell you many stories.  Will you be prepared to give an ear?

There are 23 growth rings in this tree.  That means it’s already 23 years old.
