Like Me?, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Like Me?

The apple does not fall far from the tree
So is said this dateless idiom goes
But I would argue they are not like me.

The apple does not fall far from the tree
But in their early years they were set free
The life that they own it is they who chose

The apple does not fall far from the tree
So is said this dateless idiom goes

Windy Knob, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Windy Knob, Robert A Sieczkiewicz

Night is now being chased into the past
No signs of hurry to get underway
Tis a time I wish would forever last
Calmness allows my mind to slowly stray

Pure is my vision of new fallen snow
Landscape of white uncomplicated sight
At ease staring at its unsullied glow
Providing no reason to be contrite

Reality tells this moment won’t last
The sun shall slip higher into the sky
Pairs of eyes of many will be amassed
With their loving kisses they shall not shy

Life at Windy Knob is sight to behold
With children untrammeled out in the cold
