Little Sailboat

the wind arrived
filling the sail and stirring the sea
it nearly felt as though the little boat took flight


yesterday my friends took me to 
Garden of a Thousand Buddhas
here in Montana
it was a gray day
the prayer flags were dancing wildly
sending prayers into the heavens

it seemed perfect to share this photo
with the little boat whose sail is also full of wind
now I think of the little flags on the boat as prayer flags

sharing with PPF

    een mooie dag met vrienden in de tuin van de Boeddha
    jammer dat er geen zon was.
    mooi gebedsvlaggen,het gebed naar de hemel sturen.
    Een mooie kleine zeilboot,zo kwetsbaar op de wilde zee. 
    wens je een mooi weekend!
    groetjes Christiene.

    a beautiful day with friends in the Buddha garden
    shame there was no sun.
    beautiful prayer flags, sending prayers to heaven.
    A pretty little sailboat, so vulnerable in the wild sea.
    wish you a nice weekend!
    Greetings Christiene.

  19. What a beautiful boat! I love it so much. The flags are very pretty too.

  20. I love both! The colorful flags against the gray sky, the boat holding its own in the wind. Lovely and cheerful.

    It looks like your textile boat.

  26. Prayer flags are so inspiring. Luv your lil sailboat.
