Stars and Stripes

I swing before your eyes as a bright gleam of color,
a symbol of yourself,
the pictured suggestion of that big thing which makes this nation.

 My stars and my stripes are your dream and your labors.

They are bright with cheer,
brilliant with courage,
 firm with faith,

because you have made them so out of your heart.

 For you are the makers of the flag and it is well that you glory in the making.
 ~Franklin Knight Lane

A little zentangle holiday fun inspired by the flag of my country.  A special thank you to Suzanne McNeill and her wonderful blog with so many zentangle tutorials and patterns that helped me with this!

May your day sparkle with color and inspiration!
