Reflection of A Marriage

A dream is someones bit of memory a tiny seed swirling in search of a place to germinate - to be reincarnated for any consideration.  Memory bits cling and long for recognition the deeper the experience, the more persistent the longing.  The dreamer dreams and offers a place to the memory or, denies entry to consciousness and quickly awakes.  Reflection of A Marriage is an interpretation of a memory bit sent by an ancestral spirit begging final release from a scripted union please release me, let me go, for you dont need me anymore.  This memory bit is given a place here two elements bound to one another, sealed with intention, displayed in a worn box easily closed.  A testimonial of a ritual in decline offers an ancestor a place for recognition.
