A thousand paper cranes

Sui Generis

aren’t we all.
just paper cranes.
our paper wings.
our paper veins.
our paper necks.
our paper skies.
folding petty.
paper lies.

no.

not flesh and bone.
not smiles and screams.
aren’t we all.
just paper dreams?

It took me the last 51 days to fold my first 1000 paper cranes. According to Japanese tradition, folding 1,000 paper cranes gives a person a chance to make one special wish come true. I don’t know about wishes, but I hope my cranes fly out into the world bringing a message of peace.

Like Sadako said to her origami cranes, “I will write ‘peace’ on your wings, and you will fly all over the world”.
