The Age of Wonder

“The Age of Wonder”

To feel so small
To reach the horizon
To search the past for an answer
All beneath the presence of the shadows we call our own

Looming in the distance
A silent impression
An antiquated nostalgia
The burden of such cumbersome possession
Layered deeper than the bedrock of all our sorrow

It appears again and again
Wearing us down through the years
The drifting sand forms dunes over the heart
Swallowing all evidence of a surface
And softening the strong beat
To a distant murmur~

From the early workings of the “Theory of Flight” series this page is dedicated to.

The Age of Wonder centers the idea of flight as a constant, an elusive dream, a solid purpose and the long and often fruitless efforts to reach those heights we desire though, as this image represents, we often allow shadows and ghosts to occupy those same spaces above.
