Origami — a meditation

The day you finally decided
to get rid of all the letters
from your past lovers,
you sat on the wooden floor
of your bedroom
by your scattered memories.
You folded each sheet
into an origami swan
and hung them all
from the windowsill.
By sunset,
your window looked
like a shimmering lake
where a flock of birds
has landed to rest
for the night.
