Mariana Of The Algarve - Poem by Vincent Kuo

In soft whispers of rustling waves,
the Algarve sunset
traces the silhouette
of my lovely Mariana.

On the auburn washed sands,
a dark slender shadow
trails the delicate feet
of my lovely Mariana.

I stroll and stride,
amidst her sandy footprints
behind the Samba sway
of her flaunting rear, and thighs.

Her chestnut hair flows
lustrously in the shimmers
of the dwindling sun
caressing the small of her back.

She slows and turns candidly,
smiling gently, fills my palm with hers.

I feel her velvet touch,
her subtle perspiration in my grasp.

As if mystified, she squints slightly
upon the Atlantic Horizon
and utters in her sweetest tone:

'Meu deus! Tão linda não é? '

I'm speechless.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I stroll behind my lovely Mariana along the sunset beach in the Portuguese Algarve. Still in my stupefied daze of her exquisite beauty, she exclaims softly in awe: 'My God! So beautiful, isn't it? '. She speaks my mind exactly, though not knowing that it isn't the sunset that has captivated me...
