Do You Name Your Journal?

Dear Kitty was how Anne Frank began her journal  née diary entries.  Our journal is our confidant – giving it a name elevates its status from that of an inanimate object to that of a friend.  A friend with a willing ear that we can tell our most intimate secrets, fears and idle thoughts and know the confidence will be kept.

Naming Things
diarists address
entries by name pleading for
someone’s attention

however abstract
it matters that an ear hears
else trees fall unheard
