“A Thousand Paper Cranes” -a poem dedicated to Japan

I hope to give you a beam of light

In your clouded suffering

And give you a sunny day

to piece your ruins back together column by column

A star to show you a shining way

A key to unlock your heart

And pluck the heat from the sun and weave it into a blanket

To erase the endless past

I wish to give you a poem

Because the words are

A thousand paper cranes reflecting color
