Peace Crane Mantra

Four folded origami cranes

cares folded
their power is transformed
peace grows

Note: A mantra is a word, phrase or sound used to focus the mind during meditation or prayer. I wrote the first draft of this mantra when I read a poem by Advocatemmmohan. My family loves origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. We folded the cranes after enjoying leftover birthday cake. Happy International Women’s Day!  I’m celebrating by meditating on peace, an important women’s issue.
