Looking for Names

By June Perkins
Image and Words by June Perkins

I’m looking for names
that have
meaning
metre &
magic.

Names that
connect
collect &
caress
the characters
in the process
of becoming.

Back stories are in my
dreams
adventures caught in the seam
& I follow
the threads.

Stitching brainstorms
I find names
of place &
creatures
connected to nature
that sound so pretty with chosen
surnames.

Even makes me wonder if I could
change my name
would I?

Will I invent a pen name
to find the meaning
metre & the magic?

These names are not out
of a hat
nor random.

They have meaning
movement &
miracles..
