When we put a label, a name to something - do we detract from its absolute essence?

Is it like endeavouring to cage an energy? Are we chasing ghosts of what is real, because we have lost our way in the truth of 'what is'.

Is a rose, still a rose, by any other name

Or by calling it a rose,

Or something else, does it change

do we lose something

restrict or devalue

in trying to tame

by adding a label

‘a something’

A name

before a rose,  ‘it’ became?
