I see this virus mutating

The fear of this unknown enemy creates our monsters. – Black Canvas art by C.E. Pereira

Our world is at a standstill.
We fear this unknown enemy.
There is still no cure found.
The future holds much fear.

Stepping outside has high risks.
It is done when the larder is low.
We learn of ways to protect.
Face mask is a new dress code.

My imagination runs wild.
I see this virus mutating.
We are in this for a long haul.
The infected keep increasing.

Of life that I took for granted.
Always planning my future.
The notion of there’s tomorrow.
Now, I cannot see beyond today.

I cling to hope for a cure.
Light will disperse darkness.
I continue to pray for healing.
God hears us. We must trust.

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

  1. Love the poem. Love the abstract painting too. Hello, my name is Claudia and I did a poem some time ago entitled “C” . There is an entire section dedicated to poetry, “Poetry Corner.” When you find an opportunity please feel free to stop by. You just might find more than you’re looking for. Keep up the good work! Blessings and Peace!

    1. Thank you for your lovely compliment. Love your poem “C”. I used to write poems regularly but I hit an emptiness and it is taking me a long time to get back to writing poems. My digital art helps me a lot. Hope you can find time to check out my poems under Menu. God bless.🙏🏻🌻
