"Advice from the Heavenly Empress"

Mazu looks down from
her throne and takes pity on
origami mage:

"You and your rival
have such a long history --
now throw it away."

origami mage
whispers, "I do not know how,
Heavenly Empress."

Mazu says to her,
"You must find something you both
value more than spite."

Thousand Miles Eye
says, "You both love the paper
with which you make things."

With-the-Wind-Ear says,
"Both of you love the magic
with which you were born."

origami mage
looks at the three of them, all
standing together

"I will share with her
the pearls of your wisdom," vows
origami mage
