Welcome are the passionately curious

"There was one Elephant--a new Elephant--an Elephant's Child--who was full of 'satiable curiosity, and that means he asked ever so many questions. And he lived in Africa, and he filled all Africa with his 'satiable curiosities." Rudyard Kipling

Shortly After Rain

Cricket mother screams at their ruined floors
and house
and ceilings
Cricket children scatter
to mend
and avoid
Mother Cricket's rampaging dirge.


  1. Cricket mother? Like the insects?? I'm so bad with poetry. (My apologies.)

  2. Yes yes, the insect. :) No need to apologize! It's not a problem with you or your understanding--the poet has a responsibility to convey his/her meaning(s) in a relatively accessible way. Do you have any thoughts on how to make the meaning more clear? I would muchly appreciate it! It's what the comment section is for. :)
