Framed symbols
script in precious tomes
read and unread

Personal notes
in a briefcase tucked
on a mirror edge

Wisdom flags
fervent prayers
enter jet stream

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.
