As we enter into Advent again

Art by C.E. Pereira

Another year, enter Advent.
Jesus is coming again.
Time to prepare oneself.
Open your heart and soul.

To do penance; to fast.
There are no fixed rules.
The individual decides.
To ask, “What is Advent?”

That crucial question.
What is Advent? Tell me.
I still don’t understand.
I am failing spirituality.

Four candles on a wreath.
Hope, Faith, Peace in purple.
Pink, the third Sunday is joy.
Be ready to receive Jesus.

Waiting in anticipation.
Spring clean our homes.
Out comes the Christmas tree.
Tinsels and ornaments adorn.

As we enter into Advent again.
The Christmas story retold.
The crib awaits the baby Jesus.
Christmas Day is almost here.

In Bethlehem, that first Noel.
The Saviour born, as foretold.
Happy Birthday, baby Jesus.
Jesus is Christmas. Rejoice!

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
