The night of harmony

„The night of harmony“, a film by Maria Korporal on a poem by Marcia Theophilo.

The night of harmony

In the forest exist
more eyes than leaves
more hearts than stones
it’s the night of harmony
just one night – one night a year
and you never know which one it will be
the hearts of all the animals
light up bright
the bodies disappear
and as many lights wander in the woods
as stars in the sky
it’s the night of harmony
they don’t devour each other
nor do they know each other
the jaguar and the tapir meet
the crocodile and the pirarucu
the toucan and the anaconda
the butterfly and the iguana
the falcon king and the macaque
it’s the night of harmony
just for one night
in the forest exist
more eyes than leaves
more hearts than stones.

The poem has been published in the book „Amazzonia sempre“, ed. Cooperativa Darwin > website
