Love of a paper crane

Like an origami crane

Your creases fold their way into my life,

Coloured whispers decorate your wings,

And paper feather songs you sing to me

..

I find you in my Bonsai tree

Writing words upon your paper and the leaves,

One thousand joined together you will weave,

Every shape a layer of your love for me.

..

Joined together with a string

Your fragile folds forever creased on me,

I hear your rustle flutter in the leaves,

my only wish to keep you here with me.

..

A group of one thousand paper cranes held together with string is called a ‘Senbazuru’ and is thought to grant the chance to make one wish come true.
