Peaceful Eyes

She sat on that relatively empty bench in the bus station waiting for her bus to arrive. “Five more minutes,” she thought in her mind. She refused to put on her sunglasses and preferred to enjoy the mild spring sun. “It is a beautiful day!” a smiling voice said cheerfully next to her. She turned around to rest her sight on a pair of peaceful eyes. His light beard surrounded a relaxed smile showing neat, white teeth. She grinned while looking at the sky where two white clouds roamed leisurely, “yes, very fine weather!” Her gaze lazily returned to the comfortable face next to her while stretching her legs before her. There was something lulling about his eyes… she instantly felt as if she were gently rocked on a hammock hanged on a bent balm tree. “Is this your bus?!” he inquired still with the same smile. “Oh…oh, yes!” she collected her straw purse and stood up with hesitant hastiness. Before riding the bus she turned around and waved: “wonderful day!” He waved back with a wide, bright smile: “wonderful life!” She sat back in her seat, laid back her head and felt light at heart.

  1. That’s Amore
    (by Dean Martin)

    In Napoli where love is king
    When boy meets girl here’s what they say)

    When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
    That’s amore
    When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine
    That’s amore
    Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
    And you’ll sing “Vita bella”
    Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
    Like a gay tarantella

    When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool
    That’s amore
    When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
    You’re in love
    When you walk in a dream but you know you’re not
    Dreaming signore
    Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli
    That’s amore
