Names like Ma’kita and Nochipa
are exotic, mysterious
while Moon Dancer and Rainbow Hopper
sound ditzy spiritual or hippie-wise,
but there comes a time when it’s okay
to be Judy or Jane, or to wear Cindy
or Sandra for your title, a time when
you decide that a name given by parents
was chosen for a reason, no matter how
uninspired others may think it to be…so,
maybe Darlene is darling,
beloved and ancient, not mysterious,
nor magical…but a gift from one
its wearer would weave
threads of love and peace.
Thanks, Momma. Good Light.
*Okay, after this week’s serious moments, I felt a light hearted experimental piece to be in order.
