Everything else can just wait

To enjoy an ice cold orange drink. – Pix by C.E. Pereira

This morning, the sun too bright.
I’m outside pulling out weeds.
Sweat trickles down my back.
It is a beautiful, sunny day.

My mind focused on the chore.
And also wanting to be indoors.
To be sipping an ice cold juice.
The sound of ice cubes clinking.

At last the garden looks fresh.
Back indoors, I sigh, contented.
Relaxed, I enjoy my ice cold drink.
Everything else can just wait.
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. Yep. That wonderful feeling of having got the garden tidy again, and then relaxing inside afterwards. It is rainy and windy here today though, so this won’t be happening today to anybody!
