How to make paper planes ?

January 12, 2011 at 2:10 pm 14 comments


Take a dream from your heart,
Color it with crayons of childhood imagination,
Breathe it into a poem,
Catch it on a page of the writing pad,
With butterflies on its cover.

Slowly tear the page,
And fold into a plane,
Blow a lungful of air into its tail,
And throw it, onto the winds.

Some will fly to faraway lands,
Some will nose dive into the rocks.
But one may travel into the clouds,
And come back to you,
Stealing fragrances from the north wind.

Still,
Take another dream,
Make another plane.

    A delight! A slice of pure unadulterated delight! Love the metaphor you pour in; the breathlessness you infuse, with a few words, a warm memory and a paper plane!
    Thank you!
