Map Folder by De Jackson: Reblogged from Whimsygizmo’s Blog

I was so taken by this poem that I had to reblog it with the author’s permission.

De jackson describes herself as “a parent, a poet, a Pro Crastinator, and above all else, a lover of words.”

I think all of who she is comes through in this de-lightful and original piece. Thanks De for letting me share it.

Map Folder
Posted on November 12, 2012

I
Never Eat Shredded Wheat
when I’m missing you;
only pie will do, and I
was unfolding crust
when I thought of something.
Thus:

I’m gonna invent a Map Folder.
An engineering marvel,
some tricky little magic gizmo
to crease all those miles
right down the center,
just pull the ends together,
half all those inches
and then half them again
bend ocean to ocean and
tuck them in.
Almost complete,
one last pleat
and I’ll be there by noon.

…………….Map Origami.

You’ll fold it again, and we’ll go
………………………………….to the moon.
