I don't know how to fold a monkey, do you?Japanese-inspired swans
of assorted paper hues
Entangled in dark threads,
Tied to a primitive cross
of thin, dried twigs,
Yearning for flight unknown.
A couple of months ago, I bought a how-to book on origami, took it to the field and taught myself how to fold paper creatures. Kept me occupied for a month or so before I got bored with my new hobby. I have the attention span of a proboscis monkey.
I am back! And boy, do I have exciting news (good and bad)!!
