Amidst the sunflowers

Black spots on red.
Vibrant on yellow petals.
Sunflowers to attract.
Pretty on green leaves.

Black spots on orange.
Sunflowers in your yard.
Black spots on yellow.
A picture perfect garden.

Ladybird! Lady beetle!
Ladybug! On sunflowers.
Pretty and graceful.
The canvas of nature drawn.

I read of a ladybug feeder.
Of bamboo hanging on twine.
With raisins inside to invite.
The little buggers lured in.

Will a ladybug bring me luck?
From faerie kisses only.
Enchanted by ladybugs.
Amidst the sunflowers.

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
