Tanka | Craft & Rise

paper folded
child’s hand control the creases
keen dexterity
origami crane crafted
sedentary not to rise

the craft was way out
U F O from the future
allegedly so
hot temperature rising
warm showers for the crew

the craft just rising
a soaring hot air balloon
slight breeze guiding
pick up not yet decided
gas bottles dictate when

the craft of weaving
the rise and fall of bobbins
creating silk lace
now adorns lords and ladies
true bugs the first attired
