At birth I was given a square of paper

I always prefer doing my folds in the air

as opposed to flat surfaces

No bone folders

no tweezers

no rulers

I fancy myself a purist

At 5

with basic folds

I was a crane

At 14- a dragon

At 20 – a star.

When I married

I became

a closed Origami box

As a Mother

my children’s papers

allowed my box to open

Then I became a rose

I stayed a rose

for many years

Now I flatten my

square of paper

and in the air

begin to fold

I can be anything.
