A Thousand Paper Cranes

By Isabella Taylor, Poetry Editor

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


To 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
