Framed symbols,
script in precious tomes,
read and unread
inform a room.

Personal notes
in a briefcase tucked,
on a mirror edge,
manage sanity.

Wisdom flags,
fervent prayers
enter jet stream
restore equilibrium.

A recent post of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai about Tibetan prayer flags got me thinking about the power of  written word. The flags are small squares of cloth printed with words of wisdom, prayers, mantras, and spiritual images.

The idea behind these [prayer] flags is that with every move they make (through the wind) a little bit of the strength, the power of the prayer, is becoming free. If the wind moves them, then the air is cleansed and the intention of the prayer is spread into the world.
