The poet Geoffrey Chaucer, without benefit of any linguistic manual, referred to the sun as "the day's eye, or else the eye of day."• Daylights is timeworn slang for the human eyes, dating back to at least the early eighteenth century.

The practice of equating the eyes with lights or windows is even older; one Latin word for eye was lumen, meaning "light."

Is this a good opening sentence?

Aaliyah's eyes focused intently on the hands of her leather banded watch, willing them to move. (Why does she want them to move?).
-equally pale pink- thus far it is the first reference to pale pink so it is not equal to anything pink or pale.
