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

Binding Tides

I feared the sea’s mercurial pull, stayed
Onshore, when I was small. But now
 I find
With some dismay the ocean is in me.
Moons pull and shove me, but beyond the dark
Blue moods I see a Star for me. So, go,
Rage, waves. See if you can blot out that high,
Eternal north star.
Your consolation
Prize? This. A faulty compass, cast aside.

Miranda by John William Waterhouse
