Mr Inquisitive

Could a scythe cut a slice
from a sycamore tree?
If a bird had no feathers
what bird would it be?
If a square had three corners
would it still be a square?
Will your curls always swirl
if you tug at your hair?

My curls will always swirl
For questions make them so
You will question me ‘why’
when my answer is ‘no’.
If I answer you  ‘yes’
You will question with ‘how’
If a tree could grow knowledge
I'd reach for a bough.

    The roots are developed deep down in the mind. They spring out and uncoil in hopes that we find. A meaning to answer a contract we signed. When desperate, we hoped we were one of a kind. Love your fun little writes Michelle. Peace. :)

    Michelle, I like this witty two stanza with quest, twiddling with... yet seriously personal. Namaste!

    Sometimes avarice, or maybe acquisitiveness can be a good thing Mikki - would a circle be a circle if it only had 180 degrees? The moment I was born I got all the Degrees I truly needed - great language and message in this subtle masterpiece Mikki - with respect, J.A.B. %

    a great play on words, like a river to ford, beguile not by sword, just a quill to apply, sidestep round the fly, shut up johnson you fool...
