prayer flags

prayer flags larry louie

prayer flags fringe air…
they agitate in wind
and flutter edge their
repetition…incremental to
wellbeing across time and space

prayer flags pierce blue
sky distance with forest pine

they ground their tissue proxies
in stability of earth

prayer flags scatter blessings…
wisdom gifts of caution…
guides for a sentience of being
where ease displaces worry and
sweeps care from consciousness
