Quick! Leap into the Torrent!
A rose by any name might smell as sweet, but pick the right one to sidestep defeat.
A simple name to avoid the thorn…
Does that beckon, and glow?
Phrase, jump the pond. Be clever. Be quick.
Abbreviate. Modernize. Show a bit of wit.
Hedgerow of olde with both brambles and blossoms
Just doesn’t sit well with Armadillos and possums.
Still I sit here in this garden surround,
Playing with words until I like the sound.
Direct. Clean. And here.
A verb. A noun. With meaning unclear.
But that is as life, especially this year.
So reader thus starts a journey to somewhere,
Leap into the torrent –
Enjoy as we get there.
