Flags in the Garden

I like little pennant style flags of any sort. They are always cheerful and ready to announce some kind of party or activity. Well, except those that hang over car dealerships. I feel sorry for those flags, for all they snap and dance in the wind, they can't seem to energize the big block of energy that is all asphalt and vehicles below. Parked in tedious uniform colour and rows, the cars sit blankly. Compare say, to a marina. "Oh!", those flags say, "Something is about to happen!". People come and go in a marina, the tides come in and out, wind from around the bay makes the boats bob and dip. Flutter go the pennants!
