origami cranes

wishes folded into wings

golden thoughts take flight


Joining in with Ronovan’s haiku challenge.

his prompt words this week are CRANE and GOLD.

serendipity as I discover that the crane is considered a sacred bird in Japan and wishes will be granted to those who fold one thousand origami cranes. I have taken a photo of an origami crane left at a shrine which I will add to this post on my return.

at the moment I can only post photos which I have taken on the iPad.

and it is my birthday today! What a happy day, off to see a Japanese garden and art museum here in Fukuoka before flying to Tokyo.

update: after posting the above, we visited a Japanese garden in Fukuoka and on entry we were given an origami crane for longevity! How magical is that! Can you see the crane in the picture?
