Nancy Erisman of Pomegranate Trail‘s pennant is a book full of love for our beautiful broken world
ragged cloth, torn and stitched in Nancy’s words
creating invisible baste thread beads.
I saw them as seeds.
Thread seeds.

I added a vintage and mighty awesome blue moon charm from my treasures.
I added a tiny bell, a bit green with age, to the bottom of the blue moon.
To me the bell symbolizes all of the hopes, dreams, melancholy and delight
in a world filled with people.
Bells that call one to service, to dinner, to learning.
Bells that ring out for justice, for honor, for peace.
Bells as music to our ears!

opened up to reveal the heart inside this book of love
filled with so much love
settling in with the gathering
Nancy sent this beautiful card

    Give a child a book and you give her the whole world. Send a book of love as Nancy has done with her wonderful pennant and you give everyone an opening into our world. This is such a lovely and delightful pennant; it literally sings to me of discovery, of wonder, of finding between the “pages: of cloth, thread and talismans, a deep understanding of what we hope our world can be.

    The flag holds so much of Nancy’s generous spirit and her words reveal the poet that she is. I love all the things she names the bells calling us to

  3. Nancy says:

    Yay! So glad it is there, safe and sound and resting within the gathering!
    Thanks for the kind comments Marti, Mo and Dee 🙂 xo Ladies

    I had already seen Nancy’s wonderful prayer flag on the Pomegranate Trail, but as with any true story cloth, I read something different each time. Today’s post was do different, and left me humming …

    “If I had a bell
    I’d ring in the morning
    I’d ring it in the evening
    All over this land …

    I’d ring out danger
    I’d ring out warning
    I’d ring out the love between my brothers and my sisters
    All over this land … “

    Nancy’s words also has that song in my heart today. Her beautiful book holds so much of her heart and generous love.
