Variant on Kokin Wakashu, 7 (The Last Fold)

Fold your heart.
Fold it again.
Like multi-colored paper:
red on one side, white on the other.
Fold it a third time, a fourth.
Things begin to take shape.
A crane, a mountain,
a boat, a tree covered in snow.
The last fold could explain it all
if you have the skill
or the patience
to pull it off.
Try.
