Poem: What Was Once Big Became Bigger

When I was young
Confined to the playgrounds of youth
The world seemed so large
Full of wide wonder
As I grew older
With the opportunity to explore
Instead of growing smaller
The world now at my fingertips
Continued to grow with my curiosity

A quadrille writing prompt from dVerse using the word “curiosity.”

      1. Yes! Funny comment about that~ I wrote a post last year, titled “a Curiouser and Curiouser night,” based on an interactive play adaption of Alice in Wonderland, that I had attended. A curious coincidence. 😄

  1. Oh, I love this especially the positive shift to growing older. That curiosity is even harder to keep in, but at least we have more options to pursue it in different ways compared to when we were younger. Beautifully and brilliantly said.
