The Eyes Are Windows


The eyes are windows of the heart
Wherein transparency will show
A myriad feelings to impart
From where in sadness, tears do flow.

The eyes will say contents of heart
The speech two lovers freely speak,
For Silence eloquently starts
Romance in muted communique.

The eyes are windows of all cares,
Display the sad and wearied soul;
Distant looks and empty stares
Reveal a man who is not whole.

His weak attempts to somehow hide
What's clearly felt and seen-
Will showcase all the stuff inside
Deep secrets of where love had been.

The eyes are windows too of kindness
Touching looks that give embrace,
Blessing one words of forgiveness
Of bitter hurts there is no trace.

The eyes of Love are open windows,
Giving joy, shared happiness;
Reaching forth to let one know
It always seeks to bless with goodness.

    Beautiful poem. Eyes as central piece of body language reveal the most. Sentiments so well expressed. Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

    The eyes have long been called windows of the soul - your poem captures this notion beautifully. (Report) Reply

    The eyes are the windows of the heart, soul and kindness and also open windows
    of love.Distant looks and empty stares betray a pretending lover. The ideas are beautifully conveyed in every stanza. (Report) Reply

    I agree, eyes do reveal a lot more than is otherwise obvious; but in reality, to understand people really well one needs to analyze their actions as well over a period of time rather than just what their eyes reflect... (Report) Reply

    This is a beautifully written poem that points out expression of feelings beyond what is said aloud. I communicate with my pets by observing their eyes, breathing, movement, posture etc. it is a beautiful language that many don't know how or don't want to use. (Report) Reply

    the thing to notice is that we notice signs of others in their eyes with our eyes....... its like we connect to each others' soul through sight.......... (Report) Reply

    Wonderful poem Cynthia, the eyes truly are the windows of the soul.
    our subconscious mind can take in so much data, with just a glance!
    , and results are either suppressed or a warning sign is given,
    its that sixth sense, we seldom take notice of.
    and makes us feel uneasy at times.
    wonderful thought provoking poem (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
