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
