Seeking comfort

Of pancakes for breakfast
Dripping with Maple syrup
A cup of hot coffee
The nights web disperses

Of a cup of vanilla ice-cream
Scooping each spoonful
Savouring with delight
The days work forgotten

Of sweet green grapes
With a tinge of sourness
A bottle of white wine shared
While soft music, sighs covered

Of sour mangoes
With a tinge of sweetness
A mango lassi for dessert
After a spicy Indian meal

A tall glass of ice water
The first sip of pleasure
The clink of ice-cubes heard
On hot sunny days, a delight

And the favourite hot cocoa
A comfort on raining days
Or an afternoon tea-time
With hot lemon tea and English scones.

The day’s drudgery can change
If one seeks what comforts
Relax, eat and drink.
My world tilts right again.

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
