Humanity - Poem by sílvia oliveira

There will be some rain
On arid lands
Of minds and hearts...
A little more splendor
There will be
On those stars
Of circumspect eyes...

There will be some breeze
As well as a tree
Longing for a windy kiss...

When hands shake hands
And eyes meet eyes,
And when people are linked
With other peoples,
There will be in the world
Some mistery, some peace -
A sentiment of humanity...

    dear silvia sometimes some subtleties make a poem lovely. the last stanza somehow takes away some of the sweetness of this poem. yoiu explain something people already know. sometimes it is better not to explain so that the obvious is the honour for the readers
    - to feel.
    so haiku.
