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

Gentle man

Gentle man
Learned well in the ways of his Father
Dependable man
Intruding into my despair
Yet can take “no” for an answer—
Frightening thought.
He walked ahead of his beloved,
Gave her a rose—
Thorns gone: he himself had taken them off.
Generously open and red.   
And opened the door for her.
