Sunlight dancing across the floor
streaming through gaps in the wall
a pretty play of glittering diamonds
becomes invisible when shadow falls.

The curtains cover the windows
it is dark except for sunlight dancing
for a few more minutes I enjoy the dance
shadow falls across the gaps, invisible again.

The window curtains drawn, sunlight flows in
the room is bright, cheerful with warmth
into the corners have the shadows retreated
forgotten, fading as sunlight takes over.

Such pleasure these moments of nature
can gladden the heart, bring on a smile
yet sadden I am for I see the shadow
I am that shadow, no one sees.

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
