Sunset in my living room

Photo by C.E. Pereira

The last glow before dusk.
It’s rays fall across the wall.
Shadows of the iron grills.
Patterns in the soft light.

I took a few camera shots.
Dusk was anxious to emerge.
Sunset in my living room.
How awesome this painting.

The sun’s beam dancing.
But no glitter of diamonds.
Just a soft glow of topaz.
The horse basking in warmth.

I felt my spirit lift up and smile.
I marveled at this rare show.
Less than five minutes to savour.
I had a sunset enter my home.

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
