181. On the Moment Thoughts © Hélène Levasseur

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Uplifting well wishes have come
We no longer feel so worrisome
Prayers galore folks we always adore
As we feel them and want more
Let’s promise to respond likewise
When we have no tears found in our eyes
Sensing joy, peace and harmony
Brings us into a state of Christmas glee
So on our mark, get set and let go
And let God take over our sorrow
It’s as simple as One – Two – Three
Immediately and carefully we’re set free
Of any silly willy burdens and fears
Knowing that we are His beloved dears
Love and Joy is in the Christmas Air
Perhaps nippy and freezy but it is fair
God works in mysterious ways
We then see clearly as there is no haze
When our plans are all of a sudden changed
It’s obvious God’s got a better One arranged
It is believed that our life is grandly theatrical
And perhaps mystical and somewhat musical
Preparing our souls, mind and spirit is a pre-requisite
To reach heaven’s higher heights and folks that is it!

Enlightened Hélène Just Pondering!

Enlightened Hélène Just Pondering!

There’s me and my light
Alone in thoughts and prayer
Always ready to divulge it all
Reminiscing not chagrining
Knowing that I am set free
And with God feeling full of glee

The ones of the same cloth
I believe are forthcoming one day
They must be as they are in my index
For my future and theirs too = Heaven
Teachers and Learners like me
Are given quite a remarkable destiny

Honouring others is my remedy
Listening more than sharing my stuff
As they are in need of a helping hand
I will become their trustworthy psychiatrist
A friend in need is a friend indeed
Where I pray unceasingly without talking

Voila! Mes Amis! On a Mission!

173. Prosaic and a little Poetic © Hélène Levasseur


Helene has the style or diction of prose in her compositions
When reading all her poems we see she lacks poetic beauty
She however believes prosaic language can convey her experiences
Following being a survivor of a Severe Brain Injury and  Metastatic Cancers

Some have proclaimed that her poems are like fridge magnets
Ordinary, everyday, commonplace, conventional, routine
Run of the mill, straightforward, by the numbers and like workadays
She however believes that she is interesting, imaginative and inspirational

Hélène realizes that she has been preoccupied by prosaic day to day concerns
So commonplace and has faced being  challenged becoming unromantic
It is her goal to manifest into one of the most popular Brain Injury and Cancer Poets
O.K. I guess the News about her will be the popular Brain Injury and Cancer Prosaic writer.

News of 2016: Hélène is to become an acknowledged Writer with Prosaic Poetry

172. Autobiographic Prose Poetry © Hélène Levasseur


The white lilies are still beautifully blooming
After two weeks from Kam’s Market into my home
What a fragrance so overwhelmingly astonishing
Where mysteriously I no longer feel wholesome

A new sense of identity is always submerging
With the help of a dictionary and thesaurus
As I have time with this weather really warming
My yearning for literary arts with God’s Son Jesus

A Universal sense of belonging looms in my vicinity
Born and raised as a Catholic I want to serve him
Acquiring Christ-like and Mary-like ways to simply
Obey magnificently reading daily the bible with vim

For now much more than a quarter of a century
Life has continued in its usual yearnings for hope
With recovery and rehabilitation existing a destiny
Where comes the long awaited reintegration elope

In ten years I reached bronze which is my 1st base trimester
My next ten years I made it to the 2nd base which is brass
I am in my 3rd base/trimester which is silver for Levasseur
In four years I will have made it home to a Diamond pass

In my eulogy one day there will be mention of the following
1. Elementary School Teacher – Graduate of Teacher’s
College in Sudbury, Ontario. English Grade 7 & 8.
2. Paediatric Secretary – For Drs. Hingston, Rigg and Dejong
3. Sales Representative for Benndorf -Verster selling Canon
4. Sales & Marketing Manager in the Trade and Consumer 
Show Industry for Tracon Exhibition and Southex Exhibition
5. Founder of the Holy Wow Poets and thus a Poet
6. Singer, Song-writer, Speaker, Casual Guitarist, A few notes on 
the Piano.
7. Cancer Survivor
8. Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor
9. Yearning to be Spiritually Fit!

The Lily is my favourite flower because of its fragrance
Gerberas are my second because of colour and beauty
The bouquets would encompass my funeral with elegance
No worries folks I am still in remission and now feel pretty

Thank you for your ongoing well wishes and prayers
Also if you have read me thus far I am amazed with you

170. Headlined Genius Levasseur © Hélène Levasseur

It is said that Hélène’s Don’t Quit Poetry Recitals are Stellar
How exciting regarding her who one once labelled Bipolar
Perhaps she is considered some days a Loser or a Gainer
But let us have faith in Her lovely Almighty Creator

God knows her inside out and is the Redeemer
It is believed that one day she will be Popular
Perhaps found in everyone’s diary as a Newcomer
It is believed that to many she is a Forerunner

Being a T.B.I. Traumatic brain injury Survivor
We could see her as a Campaigner and/or Entertainer
Regardless of the truth that she reacts like a Teenager
It’s better now out of once being diagnosed a 10 year Junior

Time has come to rise and shine somewhat Irregular
But this is because she was challenged to be a Spectator
Because of her lack of memory she can’t be a Gossipper
It would probably require her to become more a Gospeller

Oh well this poem reflects that Hélène is still a Dreamer
Not to worry it will probably start the spreading of a Rumour
It is simple to realize that one can be an incessant Learner
Though known that for a quarter of century she was a Loner

Thanks be to God everyone that she never became a Moaner
This is because every day she would turn it all to her Saviour
She knew in her heart that God is our Dad and is Super-Duper
She believed that birds of a feather like Eagles hang Together

Emmanuel the Holy Spirit made her become an earnest Believer
The Medical Profession believed that she would scarcely Recover
But “All things are Possible with God” is Hélène’s incessant Banner
And has been known that life via struggles we can carry an Eraser

As it has been a job to re-establish a good Cognitive Behaviour
Thank God that He has given her a direct Celestial Flavour
Let us remember that once she was a “Mover and a Shaker”
Nothing would stop her from always remaining a Stargazer

The Severe Brain Injury became like a confrontational Deceiver
Having learned to turn impossibilities into a possibilities’ Endeavour
Would become a part of her Spiritual, Medicinal, Christian Altar
Turning over everything to Our Lord Jesus Christ the God Master

This is how Our Lord became the School of Sweethearts’ Sponsor
So from the beginning it was important to become a Globetrotter
From a satellite in Hélène’s mind’s came an Intellectual Measure
She was medically diagnosed eccentric and sometimes Out of Kilter

But folks over the last quarter of a century
A Journalist is spreading a Headline about me
“An Enlightened Genius is Hélène Levasseur!
She is responding: ” Mon Doux. Mon Dieu!”

Holy Wow! Celebrate Recovery invites Hélène Levasseur to give her Testimonial!

Holy Wow! Celebrate Recovery invites Hélène Levasseur to give her Testimonial!

I’ve been once told
My time was on hold
To become bold
So I won’t fold

Remembering Oh my
I start to cry
I don’t want to die
I start to sigh

I’m in remission
Don’t want insertion
Into chemo infusion
Understand my confusion

Not to worry
My tests will be worthy
Showing I have in my journey
Lots to accomplish everlastingly

First time in a long time
Since I’ve heard a chime
In my heart that does not rhyme
With the death do us part crime

Don’t mind me folks about it
Questioning Cancer I’m having a fit
There’s no proof yet but I’m a misfit
Thinking about this affects my spirit

You see I bled the other day
Twice this happened and what can I say
Except hello cancer you’re showing up eh
You, we all know, represent doomsday

It’s o.k. you know I’m Helene Levasseur
And won’t let this challenge damper
My joie de vivre and great manoeuvre
Of praying for dearest God to take over

Perhaps all of this is simply a false alarm
Must glide through everything with my charm
Not letting any negative thoughts swarm
Relying on our Holy Spirit who keeps me lukewarm

So here’s all of my words laid down showing upset
Enough is enough as I decide to recite a chaplet
My prayers I bring to you as a lovely floweret
Thanking you for yours towards a minaret

Many thanks indeed for reading me thus far
Never does a day go by that I yearn to be a star
According to the doctors I am a 10 year old on par
Facebook holds my journal typed on Apple my altar

I see a twinkle twinkle little star and make a wish
Help me God never to become anything sluggish
Falling apart never happened and that would be outlandish
As you know on earth I have left a lot to accomplish

The Holy Wow Poets’ Anthology 2013 was exciting
So Helene on your mark get set and go Highfaluting
Your quest to make our Club visitors’ yearning
And The Holy Wow Poets Canada never ending

Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Voila!
Helene can never stop promoting a show with hoopla
It’s her trade and consumer show skills not to withdraw
Skills, talents and treasures that are not like a see-saw

If you’ve read till here you were meant to be a Poet
and you know it, come and show it and becoming fit!

The my Websites orchestrated since Hélène got Facebook:

Sending you my love and affection,
Hélène Levasseur Charron xo

155. Heaven’s Third Eye Hélène © Hélène Levasseur

Let’s discover Heaven’s Third Eyed Hélène
Celestial, Mystical and esoteric wren
Her speculative inquisitive invisible eye
Provides perceptions of a world so wise

Spiritually she examines everything about herself
Leading to inner realms of ancient consciousness
A state of Enlightenment and universal imagery
Having deep personal spirituality and philosophy

She now enters a quarter of a Century
Associated with religious visions
Clairvoyance and ability to perceive
Life with magnificent significance

Hélène could be labelled as a “seer”
Having not worked for a quarter of a century
Having examined her inner works and experiences
Some claim she has the capacity to read internally

Lo and behold her ladies and gentlemen…
Let’s Listen to her ethereal dimension…
As we become healthy and holy…
