Hot sand

200 х 120

acrylic on canvas


People are massive rocks, I am loose sand. They maintain their shape, I can become of any shape.

People are strong, I am weak. They stand as a monolith, I crumble into tiny particles of sand, which are impossible to get together.

People stand all together, I am alone. I ensphere them.

People are cold, I am warm. You can get warm with me, you can bury yourself in me and have a rest.

I’ve constantly wanted to become a rock, but I will never become. I am sand.

I want to be with rocks, but I will always be sidewise.

My structure is completely different.

Upon understanding this difference, I listen with my ear, how deeply inside of the thickness of my sand my heart is beating. In my warmth.
