Curiosity has play pattern potential.
It respects certain quizzical rules.
It starts very subtly
from a unique place within oneself
more so than does inquiry.
Yet it uses a lot of the basic rules
of play that inquiry ignores.
Curiosity can have whimsy
with no comeuppance of certitude.
It can dally, dawdle and daze.
Inquisitiveness and curiosity
could be blood relatives
but obviously grew up
in different parts of the brain
and subsequently produce
different schools of thought.
Curiosity has a horizon line
that goes out of retention frame.
It needs a certain amount
of personalized scavenger viewing.
Curiosity, would claim of itself
as one of the nine
metamorphosises of catdom!
We should all be that lucky!
Yet, inquiry would ask of curiosity,
how is that so,
without purring as a possibility?
