One Paper, Many Forms

origa-me

fold, unfold
crease
open, refold
re-crease
sharpen the edges
turn and fold
again and again
crease after crease
fold on fold
always turning
shaping
open and press
fold again
press and crease
and fold
until the flower
forms
the bird flaps
her wings
the life emerges
pressed and folded
creased and worn
a masterpiece
