    What's In A Name!

    Sometimes,
    When I’m alone,
    I think...
    About a lot of things in general,
    but about names in particular.
    What if my name was Dawn?
    I think.
    Solemnity so deep every ‘O’ in moments that are d’O’wn
    Will be replaced by ‘A’,
    Changing it to soothing d’A’wns!
    What if my name was Summer?
    I think.
    I’ll taste of warmth and liveliness and infinite possibilities
    for the Sun will rise every day from my backyard,
    only to tear the veil of darkness with the softest of the kisses.
    What if my name was Dream?
    I think.
    Because it’s only there I can kidnap myself
    from my own reality; be a fairy,
    Own the world’s largest library.
    What if my name was Azura?
    I think.
    I’ll paint with hues, more outside the lines
    than inside because even though I was born from feathers
    and was wrapped in silk,
    the spirit I own is nothing but wild.
    What if my name was Autumn?
    I think.
    I’ll live life gracefully, watching the sky and the sea.
    And oh, how full of shades will be my last days!
    I’ll dance in the breeze before falling,
    Thanking life to have been such a wonderful gift.
    What if my name was...
    Um, I think.
    And think some more.
    And I keep my name Autumn.
    Yes, Autumn.
    At least until I slingshot myself
    into yet another string of thoughts,
    Which will be about a lot of things in general,
    but about names in particular.
