Carpe Diem #1079 folding paper

This prompt made me think of the Japanese legend of folding 1000 papet2ec16hyse9sy0k1wwbrb0oste0g-_35r cranes.  It also made me think of a  children’s book  on Sadako Sasaki.  Sadako was a young girl affected by he atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. She has become a symbol of peace and reminds us of all the children victims of nuclear war .

 

 

 

paper folding 
one thousand cranes
grant a wish

~~~

644 cranes
flutter in the breeze
death comes too soon

~~~

after you are gone
thousands of paper cranes
stir our hearts
