ONE THOUSAND PAPER CRANES
62/ „MISJUDGED INNOCENCE „ RIAS VIAENE
I became just used to be mammy‘s and daddy’s joy.
When I toddled happy under the falling Little Boy
Mushroomed killing winds slew the passing crane
I kept in mom’s loving arms, safe heaven in vain
63/ „SOULMATE „ MILA VIAENE
As a youngster , I loved the peaceful breeze on the lake .
The flapping crane , my recourse and beautiful soulmate.
Between happy go lucky , and inflaming infusions
Dipping my little big toe into vast and cool illusions
64/LEGEND’S BELIEF „ ESTHER VIAENE
School friends incited me walk together to green meadows.
We lay down in beds of forget-me-nots and cool sun downs.
We saw the flying crane , bringer of good fortune, a Godsend!
A thousand paper cranes, and fate I would bend ….
65/ „1000 CRANES „ JIA VIAENE
While deathly fluids dripped and burned in my vanes
I frantically started the repeated folding of origami cranes.
Each piece of paper I found was folded and counted
In little head bald, exhausted and daunted.
66/ JUDJEMENT OF TRUMAN „ AILU VIAENE
And live fled , soulless became my harassed little body .
Who is Truman from far away ,who made his decision so boldly
To scarify thousand non guilty , to end an already won war
For never ending world peace. I leave my story for history ajar.
