I realized this is a secret.
But I’m the only one who thinks so.
This is about me and my secrets.

Secrets keep secrets from me.

In the blink of an eye
it suddenly disappears
For some reason I can’t say a word

Even though I’ve lived my whole life learning words.

It usually appears in that way
This secret is more true than reality
Even though it only happens sometimes.

It hides itself like it’s uninterested when I try to explain it.

It’s part of the everyday. It’s a myth. It’s a ritual.
Under the right conditions the secret speaks.
The small secret is always quietly waiting for the right time to reveal itself.

The body responds to it
I notice it when my steps slightly change
When I inhale deeply
Experience an unknown landscape
Remember the temperature of my heart

This is how the secret lives on, appearing at random times but always undeniable.
Both stuck to and separate from my consciousness, even without trying to hold on, even if I think I’ve left it behind, it lives on.

This isn’t a secret that will hurt someone.
There’s no way to explain it
It’s a small spirit that allows me to feel my own sense.

I think everyone has their own little secret.

When I try to give that secret a shape,
Will I get punished?
Or it will do nothing?

I’m driven by this secret and continue to paint.
This is where I am now.


Mr. Takaomi Kuze gave me consideration about the art works. I would like many people to read it.
