Paper Stars

They say that 
1000 paper stars 
will grant a wish, 
and even though I don't have one
in mind,
I'm giving it a try,
sitting under the 
glow of the lamp
  folding and 
folding and 
And as I watch 
the stars multiply under 
my fingertips,
overfilling bottles 
and jars, 
I realize the magnitude 
of the innate desire
that I haven't yet realized
is larger than
I imagined,
and perhaps when I finish
I'll understand what
these stars are for.
