    Origami Love

    Crisply crease
    along the fold, half-fold
    bend again and tuck-in
    the flap, smooth – give a

    rub across a 90⁰
    angle, flip the finger up,
    . . . . . . . .. .give no lip but feather
    . . . . fan and fluff both corners
    until you
    are happy
    with your
    origami love

    In the Castle, of course.
    I love your reason for the edit.

    Nicely done, Mags.

    I mis-read this as "original love" and was going to chime in with "what a quaint/romantic idea", but after reading the poem, like this even better.

    Nicely done - it actually evokes the passion and skills needed to really pull off origami art well in a way that the reader can appreciate.
