paper flowers…

i was making paper flowers
with Japanese paper…
i tried to make them
as gently as i could
but each time i folded a petal
the paper tore…

my hands are not made
for crafts…they are calloused
and rough…
my fingers are not as delicate
as the flowers i try to make…
i wonder if someone would
ever want to hold them…
