Hello toads, I guess that by now you are pretty tired of challenges. One per day can be quite strenuous, and personally I have not joined. Therefore I would like something simple for you today the 20th on this journey, yet something that can be as complex as you want it.
When you name a baby there are so much hope that is tied to the name. There are consideration of what works in society, there is fashion, there are role models, but at the core of it every name I know of also have a meaning. For instance my own name Björn, means bear. This is an old Nordic tradition of giving me a name tied to some positive attributes like physical strength. I think the name might have been a failure as I am not very muscular, but I guess the thought is what counts.
For you today dear toads and tadpoles: Take your name and use it’s meaning to create a poem. If you do not know the meaning of your name, you might find this useful. If you have a nom de plume, or prefer for various reasons to hide your name in a riddle. The prompt is wide-open and you can use any form or metaphor to write your poem today.
