Keep An Open Mind



Poems are just about everywhere If you keep an open mind So many things can prompt a verse Just seek and ye shall find Sometimes everyday happenings Inspire you to sit and write A robin frantically yanking on a worm A kid wobbly riding a bike A construction worker in a hard hat Two lovers hand in hand Traffic lights flashing red and green Sounds of a Dixieland Band Keep an eye out for things around you As mundane as they may seem Look deeper into what's going on You'll may find a hidden theme Poems are just about everywhere If you keep an open mind © Jack Ellison 2013
