Eyes, the Pathway to the Heart, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Eyes the Pathway to the Heart

Eyes, the Pathway to the Heart

Love to study your eyes in the day light
Twinkling coded messages that they send
Even you cannot keep them from my sight
Like crystal balls the future they portend

Does not matter that your eyes are sky blue
Only determined by what’s felt inside
Looking at you can see your heart be true
For your eyes glow when fully opened wide

Come very close and look into my eyes
Follow the path deeply into my heart
Can you now see that it wears no disguise
Can you see a reason we’d ever part

In loving the eyes have so much to say
A special look many hearts they can sway

 

 

Decades of Love, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Decades of LoveThe Outskirts of the Fontainebleau Forest, Alfred Sisley (1885)

Decades of Love

They walk down the twisting path hand in hand,
The leaves are golden as their many years.
At this juncture they make but few demands,
No more will they be spilling precious tears.

Life’s journey put them on this path before.
Ground is nearly barren beneath their feet.
Both understanding what is next in store,
No extensions will both ever entreat.

The warming sun is at their bending backs.
Turning to each other giving a smile,
Seeing a bench, now is time to relax.
Great love between, there is no denial.

A love they thought started just yesterday,
Counting the decades to their own dismay.

Shoes, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

ShoesStill Life with Shoes, Emil Carlsen (c.1915)

Shoes

There is a large box in the center hall
Containing something more precious than gold
They’re what some may choose to hang on a wall
Symbols of memories from young to old

Wherever traveled my shoes took me there
Be it smooth road or rugged mountain trail
In a year’s time often had but a pair
Some failed as I walked through the nearby swale

Looking closely at my laced up new ones
Wondering what new travels are in store
Now must wary about these bunions
Shan’t detour desire of many miles more

Life is a journey of countless footsteps
Over worn shoes are signs of my journey
Scuffs and scrapes memories of my missteps
But their creases have captured life’s beauty
