Your Beautiful Eyes - Poem by Helder Oliveira
When a moonlight
So clear so bright
Suddenly covered the Earth
Spreading a white and crystalline mantle
Over objects, animals and plants
Unveiling their dark-covered forms…
And stirring romantic feelings
And bringing back pleasing memories…
I looked at the sky in wonder
Expecting to find
A round, clear and full moon
But it wasn't there!
No clouds around to hide the moon
And the moonlight so bright so soon…
So where was the moon?
Where? ! Where? !
Then… I looked at you
And I saw in ecstasy
That the moonlight
Was coming from your eyes!
(Written in Luanda, the capital of Angola, on July 12,2007)
