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.
