Tibetan Prayer Flags

Years of exposure have left them nearly transparent
Tattered to knotted threads by the winds
Their beauty spent,
Now only meaning remains
I’ve considered protecting them from the elements,
But this is their purpose
As our prayers are released into the universe,
I wonder why I feel the need to preserve the visual
And sacrifice the spiritual
