Sunny days and lemonades

A bright sunny day. – Pix by C.E. Pereira

I love those sunny day.
The sky, blue and clear.
Clouds dotting the horizon.
In the air a symphony heard.

The warm air stirring up.
A light breeze begins its spin.
The wind becomes playful.
And the trees dance for joy.

Of mornings bright, yet humid.
Sweat trickles down my body.
Even under the shady trees,
the heat is strong, burning.

To have ice-cold lemonades.
A parched throat to cool.
Or, to turn on the sprinklers.
And play under its showers.

As distance clouds approach.
With the wind blowing this way.
Will it bring storm clouds?
Rain to drench, to cool the land.

By C.E. Pereira



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
