A new Mum in place


She is not home.
The old is no more.
A shell remains.
Not empty, just different.

Her reality, shape shifted.
Stuck in the in between.
The now and the past.
And the doorway beyond.

Back into the past.
The mirror of passage.
Only she sees the movie.
And no one has the ticket.

The face of a stranger.
No recognition.
A silent stare.
Eyes that see a stranger.

A fractured mirror.
Pieces with new images.
Old life fading away.
A new Mum in place.

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
