Sidi J. Mahtrow

To Ernestine

How busy you have been
To post four poems on a whim
(I know it doesn't rhyme
But 'been' is difficult in its prime)

With eyes wide open
Listening to the din
Of the world about you
When others haven't a clue.

You capture the celestial beauty
Of the water and its bounty
As you watched from the shore
And duly penned it, for evermore.

Tomorrow will come with sunrise
And many a surprise
So keep your eyes wide open
And ready your paper and pen
For a new poem is somewhere hidden
Just where and when?
