Years ago, I picked up a fascination with names...their meanings...the rhythms behind them. I chose to respond to it poetically.

This blog's a collection of some of the name poems I've written over the years.

poem: Daniela...

(I was asked to write this name poem for a child.)

name poem - daniela
Only God can judge you
but He's too busy doing interviews

so, Mother Nature's taken over
alas, she's not the judgmental type

rather, she's an artist
giving away her works of art for free.

That laughter of yours
- a musical composition arranged by her

she took the sound of rain,
wrapped it in silk,
spun it for days upon days,
then left it out to dry on an angel's harp

...and that became your laughter.

Mother Nature
ain't judgmental
She has better things to do
like give you 100 reasons
why she thinks you're beauty-full
(in the guise of 100 scuttling ladybirds
curved into a smile).

[Daniela means 'God is judge' in Hebrew - female]
