one big bloom

a  year ago

a butterfly came

into my garden

.

it scampered

nestle

tend

.

today

my garden is

one big bloom..

my origami sakura

I would love to

fold you up

tuck you into my pocket

and take you where I go

.

my origami sakura

I would love to

unfold you then

to stay in my uchi

to eat from my jubako

to dream on my futon

.

my origami sakura

I would love to

shade you from fire and rain

not sodden nor scalded

so that you will always remain

crisp and cute

and necessary in my arms

.

and not just another white face

kimono clad

paperfold

that crowds the tokonoma

.

come sit with me at the genkan

my origami sakura

let’s view what’s ahead of us

.

you are one hashi

and me, the other

.

the scenery is so beautiful..
