重力のゆくえ

土の匂いをかぎに森へゆく.
木のまねをしに森へゆく.
木の重さのゆくえを測る.
足の裏から放たれる体重を重力にすりかえて
地層深くからやってくるこだまに耳を傾ける.
木の根が水分を吸うように
両足で土の命を吸い上げる.

木が絵の具を吸う.
私はその絵の具をばれんで吸い上げる.
絵の具を吸った木は呼吸を取り戻す.
ばれんを押し当ててその吐息と私の重さを引きかえる.
土の命を返すように
底知れぬ井戸から水を汲み出すように
紙に絵の具を写し取る.


I go to forest to smell earth.
I go to forest to imitate a tree,
and measure whereabouts its weight goes.
I change my weight for gravity released from my feet,
and listen to the echo from the depth of stratum.
As if the roots suck water,
I absorb the life of ground by my feet.

A woodblock absorbs watercolor.
I absorb the color into a paper by Baren.
The woodblock comes to life again with the color.
I exchange the breath of it and my weight while rubbing Baren.
As if I give the life of ground back
or pump out water from a bottomless well,
I print the color into the paper.
