Inquisitive Mind

As I listened to her, I fell in love with her energy.
She wears the aura of an inquisitive child,
in awe of everything around her.
Questions race through her head
like raindrops running down windows.
She has the intensity of drumsticks
striking a quick rhythm.

She pursues life with an open-mind,
upbeat, treating every minute as an eternity.

A small dose of her observations keeps the mind rooted,
reminds those around her of how much they don’t know,
how much they take for granted.
Her sharp curiosity is humbling.

She addresses every subject as if walking into a room
the size of a football field, and flips every light switch.
You can’t find a trace of a shadow.
