He hiccuped, then sneezed

A sneeze was coming on.
It would be disastrous.
Instead, he hiccuped.
And flame spurted out.

Oh dear! He was toast.
Mama will roast his behind.
The barn was burning.
He sneezed; no more barn.

The heavens opened then.
A wee bit late, sighed Finn.
He felt the wind whipped by.
Mama was home, Finn sighed.

A magnificiant sight to behold.
The she dragon in all her glory.
She sees ashes instead of the barn.
Finn tries to look remorse, he fails.

She sighs, their home unscathed.
Then she whispers the magic spell.
Poofed, both dragons have vanished.
In their place stood a woman and boy.

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
