This is absolutely brilliant. I haven't been on in a while because of school and swim team and band and orchestra pit and whatnot.. Then I come back to this masterpiece. Wow. I don't know why it speaks so loudly to me, but it does. Marvelous worn, as per usual.

I love paper, how each simple paper can become anything. A paper with poetry, origami, just about anything. This poem shows the potential of every piece of paper. Love your haikus, as always :)

This is quite an interesting haiku. From reading the other two reviews, I think that everyone pulls away a something a little different from it. What I got, and this is just my opinion, correct me if I'm wrong, is that everything has many different sides. That sounds confusing, let me try to rephrase myself and explain. Hmm...what I pulled away is that although everything is different, there are also similarities. The owl, wise and reserved, is folded into a crane, peaceful and elegant. The owl and the crane are made of the same paper, their similarities, yet they are two completely different creatures. I could be reading way too deeply into this though or I could have pulled the wrong meaning altogether. This is a wonderfully written, deep haiku that makes you think. I love how you used an abstract concept like origami to get your ideas across. Once again,what a wonderful poem, you did an amazing job.

Wow! Brilliant haiku! I love the symbolism of an owl for wisdom and a crane for hope and peace when there is suffering from depression. The syllable scheme is perfect. Amd folded into a crane? Wow! I li,e the image created by the folding:) haiku is Japanese and folding reminds me of origami and an owl turning into a crane. Great piece! I really love it!
