You Shape Me

You took my life.
To cut and fold.
And make origami cranes.
When you were done.
You let them go.
To fly and unfold
In the heavy rain.
Their flattening
Pure white bodies,
Become fish as they
Land, swimming
Always further faster,
Away from me.
You took my life
To cut and fold.
And made more
Beauty from it,
Than I ever had.
