Beauty Greater than Venus, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Beauty Greater than Venus

Beauty Greater than Venus

It was just the early side of midnight
A spot of light was captured by my eye
Appeared to be dancing with great delight
Inquisitive me needed to know why

Pushed and was pushed through the constellation
Never once did my eye lose its focus
The closer I came its light was a sun
With such a lush beauty that is boundless

Her gravity pulls me in her orbit
Always in position to see her face
Greater than Venus did she exhibit
My weakened heart she did quickly encase

Love knows not a certain distant or pace
Can capture your heart in the strangest place

From the Sea, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

From the SeaThe Birth of Venus, Sandro Botticelli (c. 1485)

From the Sea

Light, bright as the sun falls into the sea
Forcing thousands of ripples to the shore
Disrupting the quietness quite pertly
Curious bubbling foam each ripple wore

Substance steadily stacks at water’s edge
When suddenly a wind came roaring in
Whirling all if it were a swirling dredge
Ceasing abruptly as it did begin

Then suddenly before my very eyes
Slowly grains of sand falling to the ground
The remaining form much to my surprise
I stood their helplessly without a sound

Such great beauty in her pure nakedness
Was the goddess of all beauty, Venus
