Somewhere in the world
Time has stopped for someone.
A mourning the heart feels.
Crying is heard, sadness unbearable.

We are made to endure suffering.
Our tears fall. We wipe them.
The storm wrecks. It takes.
We pick up the pieces. We heal.

Turmoil continues each day.
People bear the scars. Misery.
Help continues. Endurance a badge.
The human spirit never gives up.

Don’t feel guilty when joy comes.
Let your heart soar. Laugh.
Rejoice the moment. Smile.
For this is yours to cherish. Love.

Tomorrow might just be a dream.
Tonight a nightmare waiting to unfold.
Joy and happiness are but fleeting.
Nothing is ever constant except God.

Flash Fiction Prompt for Hurricane Relief #Flash4Storms


I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. 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
