Winter has arrived


A cold wind touches the soul.
Frost has covered the grounds.
Bones hurt. Chill seeps inside.
Winter has arrived too soon.

Its fragrant lingers behind.
The rose has withered.
Petals swirling in the wind.
Winter claims the rose.

The old dear sense sadness.
A heartbeat slowing down
The soul about to break free.
Winter felt, an end near.

Sleep approaches the soul.
The countdown has begun.
Each heartbeat slower.
Winters’ frost lurking closer.

Even with the hint of sadness,
There is a welcome smile.
The soul ready to leave.
Winters’ cold stops the heart.

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
