upon the thrones
of our past
Shaded by the
Awnings of our
hoped for future
This is one of my favorite recent pieces.
I think we do build thrones out of our pasts.
We sit upon the memories and experiences as if they are what give us our current position.
And we hide ourselves under the awnings of our thoughts about the future.
We sit in the shade (darkness) of our covered thrones- caught between past and future- impervious to our own light in the darkness- the possibilities and innocence of the present moment.
