NaPoWriMo 2015: Day 20


Tell me the magic and mystery of names:
That words, in any language
Can conjure up memory and madness
Fire synapses, activate nerves.
The ancients believed that to name a thing
Is to hold its true nature
In the palm of one’s hand.
Tread lightly then, for you hold my name
In yours.
