Little girls and their dolls,
An afternoon tea party,
Friendship forged amidst giggles,
While playing with their dolls.

Little boys won’t admit,
action figures are dolls.
Deny they will, loudly,
while playing with their dolls.

Little girls with Barbie and Kent,
Doll accessories to dress-up.
Little boys with Batman and Robin,
The Bat-mobile ready to do battle.

Baby dolls or paper dolls,
Raggety Ann or Cabbage Patch,
Designers dolls or Action figures,
Dolls as toys, dolls as collectibles.

From Momoko, petite and dainty,
Blythe, oversized head and large eyes,
a Robert Toner 16-inch doll,
or the anime ball-jointed dolls.

Fashion dolls as collectibles,
face repainted, hair rerooted,
one-of-a-kind, in demand,
sought after by collectors.

Into adulthood passion grows,
Memories of play and fun,
turning into collectors,
enjoying, yet serious of their dolls.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
