Origami Spirit


Origami spirit - fragile layers under paper thin skin fares cuts. The heart's depths protected on smooth edges. Hands with scissors claim destruction. Yet mine enemies fall from true beauty held in creation, perfection of folds, the triumph of form. Origami - shielded by hands, the maker of all that's sacred. I am one - life, spirit, crane soaring ancient folds of breath. By Rhonda Johnson-Saunders, June 10, 2012 For True Diminishing Hexaverse contest (David Williams)

    touching look at origami. Some say each work holds a piece of it's maker's soul. Origami certainly is very tactile, as is your poem.

    Rhonda, someone mentioned to me that I was copying your entry idea, and I had no idea wot they were going on about. Hmmm, I also used origami as a theme, but your diminished hexaverse is so much more poetic than my entry. This is a fantastic poem. You're simply getting better and better as a poet-ess all the time.

    oh my gosh, what a splendid way to do this form. Such symbolism. This is really really nice. One of the best I've seen for this contest. No luck needed for you, missy.
