アル木のウロに出会った

見上げれば天辺は見えない程の苔むした巨木であった

ウロは、手を伸ばせば届くのに、

その肉眼で捉えることはできない暗闇に

私は一層強く惹かれた

その暗闇を確かめるかのように

自分自身をウロの中に置いてみた

この暗闇から零れ出る程の、いや飛び出る程の、

噴出するかのような命を注ぎたいと感じた

これは生命芽吹く新緑の時期

手にあるのは季節を先取って現れた

まさに深紅のように色付いた紅葉

ウロからの噴出を演出する皇帝アナナスも

鈍い紅に色付いたようだ

大樹に負けない強さを持たせる為には

真逆を同居させ、互いを引き立てることが重要である

同じ葉でも大小の幅を広げ、新しさと古さ、緑と赤 ..

フレッシュな深紅の紅葉と

皇帝アナナスを組み合わせる事で

歴史ある大樹にも負けない強さを表現する事ができた

そこには感じた事のない高揚感があった

I found a hollow in a tree.The mossy tree was so gigantic that I couldn’t even see the canopy when I looked up.I could reach the hollow with my hands,But nothing could be made out in the darkness of the hollow.And that attracted me to it even more.As if to confirm the darkness within,I put myself inside the hollow

I wanted to pour my soul so that it would overflow; no, burst out and erupt from within the darkness. This is the season when new life springs out with greenery.What I have in my hands is a maple leaf colored in crimson, appearing ahead of the seasons.The king of fruits Ananas (pineapple), which depicts the eruption from the hollow space, seems to have also taken on a vibrant scarlet color.

To give it the strength to go up against the gigantic tree,It is important to embody two opposite elements in it and allow them to bring out the best of each other.They may be the same leaves and yet are of different sizes, fresh and old, green and red…

By combining the fresh scarlet leaves with Ananas,I was able to depict strength that held its own against the ancient gigantic tree.

That gave me an uplifting sensation I had never felt before.
