“Autobiography of an Origami Lantern” [poem]

Macrina Magazine has recently published my poem “Autobiography of an Origami Lantern:”

The cold, short days of winter earlier this year gave me the opportunity to stay indoors, and to explore origami. I was surprised to discover how the folding, unfolding, and rotating of the paper felt like going on a journey—all without leaving my room. As an origami amateur, I was free to play and to discover, with no preconceived notions.

What about you? What has play looked like for you this year? What have you discovered when you put aside judgments, and simply allowed yourself the thrill (and risk) of beginning something new? I’d love to hear what you think!
