Haiku For Carpe Diem #239, Curiosity

Curiosity is our Carpe Diem Haiku prompt for today.

My parents called it fiddling, but I prefer to call it curiosity. If there it was there, then it had to be pushed, pulled, turned, tweaked, smelt and even tasted. I recall my Mum telling friends of the family that she was relieved I hadn’t been born american. She was concerned about what my ‘fiddling’ could do if I ever became President…

shiny bright and red
just one push

Smiles, love and laughter
