Hope ~ 2nd prayer flag

a thing with feathers
A second prayer flag. Hope.

 Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chilliest land
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me
~ Emily Dickinson
The Prayer Flag Project
two prayer flags
(I'm using monoprints that I've made in the past, for the base of my flags.)
Husb and I are off to Montecito Family Summer Camp in Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park. (I teach adults in the mornings, and we particpate in the million camp activities the rest of the time.) See you in a week!


  1. Love the bird, the poem and the background. The stitching on the bird makes the whole flag "pop".

  2. your prayer flags are beautiful! have a great trip!
