curiosity #quadrille

fear quenches our thirst
to explore

inventors and humanitarians
know the preciousness
of curiosity

for the more curious
we are the more we learn

depleting the toxicity
of our ignorance

opening vistas
beyond our imagination

constant learning
expands our minds
and opens our hearts

d’Verse, 44 words inc ‘curiosity’, De Jackson

this Osprey is both aware and curious … the right combination to thrive!


  1. BTW: your birds, your bird photos, and the poems the birds inspire you to write are so wonderful!
    We learn so much from birds, get so much joy from them…we should take better care of them and the environment so they live on for eons…for future generations to enjoy.
    I’m always in awe and feel honored when I see a bird!
    High-Flyin’-HUGS!!! ❤ 🙂

    • this one sat on a tree at eye height, we passed only a metre away … doesn’t get more awesome than that Carolyn … didn’t need to really use my lens as we were that close!

      hugs to you both, take care precious!

  2. All knowledge is awesome (I love learning. I love knowledge. The more the better, about almost anything. I say almost for I’m sure there are things that don’t interest me). And that bird is awesome

  3. And they say curiosity killed the cat while I would like to believe that curiosity killed the fear in the cat 🙂


  4. Wow, I love this poem, Kate. Lovely, lovely. For some reason, I am not getting your new posts. I will look into it. Anyway, another lovely poem, my friend. Inspirational.


  5. Love that photo…certainly on the lookout for adventure! 🙂 Great poem! A happy life cannot be found without a bit of adventure; an open heart and an open mind certainly opens a lot more doors.

  6. The poem is very encouraging and we need to be curious at times of what is happening. The bird too is apt and showing its curiosity too. Lovely poem Kate. Kate have sent you few pictures of my grandson do let me know whether you have received them.

  7. As a Kindergarten-Teacher, mom, grandma, aunt, etc. I’ve always been about encouraging curiosity, questions, adventures, searching, discovery, etc. 🙂
    I remember an old quote says the future belongs to the curious. 🙂
    GREAT poem!!! 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

  8. You are so right that curiosity is a valuable trait and should be encouraged! Every 2 year old is a scientist asking the incessant question “Why?” I cringe when a parent gets tired and grumpy when a child asks why…
