Name

02 Dec

Before I knew you

your name

was just

another name.

.

Now

when I see it

or hear it

or read it

or write it

I cannot help

but catch

my breath.

    Would you say some names are inherently beautiful, too? In Hindi, there’s this name Meera. I’ve heard and seen its reproduction in several Romance/Slavic languages–Mira, Mera, Miera. Must be something about the sound these syllables make…

      I think it is true there are names that are beautiful in themselves – though even that s probably subjective. There are also names that become beautiful to us simply because of the person who bears the name. Smiles.

    Very true. Is there a name that’s beautiful to you? Perchance the name of the muse who inspired this verse? Oh do tell!

      There are a number of names over the years that have become beautiful. Smiles. Kanika is rather a lovely name.
