Haibun #7

The children in my library are making paper cranes. In the last 10 days they have made 2,567. They are using origami paper, old magazines, discarded chip bags, shiny bulletin board paper, and tissues. Every time I come back to the desk baskets are full to overflowing. Outside my window the Japanese weeping cherry quietly bursts into pinkness.

I'm just catching up -- I love it! And that perfect photo. Your words about the weeping cherry make me feel that it's looking in through the window, sadly, at the folded blossom.
