192. Boxing Day Pondering © Hélène Levasseur

Thank God here was not the existence of Christmas Blues
Too much fun acquiring this nice Blue Blingy Blouson
A Birthday gift from my lovely Hubby Robert Charron
To celebrate by sipping on some Bailey’s Irish Cream Booze

How exciting it has been to spend this Boxing Day
Imagine shopping with your hubby Bobbykins
This time not having to parade some fashionable wins
Whilst selecting my birthday gift for New Year’s Day

Robert will celebrate me Hélène’s 65th birthday forthcoming
At beautiful Saint St. Grill Restaurant in Port Moody
I’ll order my favourite Glazed Beef Tenderloin so fancy
As I festively thank God for his lovable Son’s new coming

2017 is where we are keen to be seen and all that a plenty
Enjoying the small things and all of God’s graces that submerge
Undersanding we are in God’s School of Learning to merge
Into the wonders of His teachings and learn to become happy

Don’t mind me folks I’m just spending some free time
On my computer trying to write a prose poem for fun
But rest assured I’m praying too feeling like we’re spun
Into changing our ways and therefore becoming prime

Perhaps it is God’s will that we change in numerous ways
Actually walking away from our me/myself and I persona
Into entering simplicity/humility and Integrity phenomena
This forthcoming year will encompass the latter in a haze

Well… It appears we’re entering the New Year 2017 with glee
My New Year Resolution is diligently to “Honour Others”
Imagine treating everyone as if they were our Brothers and Sisters
What a beautiful family the world would become with dignity

Prayers galore will be necessary in our quest of betterment
As we move forth gracefully and perhaps become soulfully holy
Why not! Jesus did say “I am Holy and therefore become Holy!”
I believe that our world would change with his archaic Statement

Voila mes amis.  We are seen to be keen and yes Holy!
So on your mark. Get set, go and move forth and be Saintly!

191. From my Celestial Enlightened Friend Claudette © Hélène Levasseur

Tonight in my prayerful resting place my departed friend Claudette has come to me in locutions confirming my beliefs. Believe this or not. She was my best friend on earth. She passed away in late 2008 after I had acquired my second cancer which was Ovarian Cancer like hers. Tonight Claudette was doing her lovely coaching and it went something like this:

Claudette Coleman is cheering, praying and praising God for all Cancer Survivors!

Hélène! What’s happening to you?
Don’t give up! Get up and move on!
We in the heavenly realms up above
Are chanting & praying wonders for you

In our Hourly Festive Moments with the Lord
We are making a special toast for you
Hip! Hip! Hooray! Today is your great day!
A Boost of Balanced Energy is coming your way!

Your prayerful wishes for family and friends
For those who you know and know not
Are cherished and manifestations of love
Are immersed in what you think, say and do

So continue to bring us your cheers & chuckles
God Hélène immerses prayer warriors like you
With an abundance of Peace and Hope
Always embellishing them with Love

I come to you today to thank you generously
For your Christmas and New Year resolutions
Where we believe that you will indeed bring forth
And that is your “Honouring Others” Promise

Way to go my old chum! Cheerio Pip Pip to you!
Our Lord Jesus Christ is Emmanuelizing you!
His Holy Spirit as you know is guiding your steps
Let go and let God give you His guidance always

Let us celebrate Merry Christmas like never before
Ascertaining that we put Jesus Christ always first
Expect miracles in your midst and entourage
Never lose Faith regardless of what is forthcoming

Remember not to think that you’re not following my foosteps
Your Metastatic Cancers are moving differently than mine
Remember in your prayer that you are a Link in a Bond
Between God’s People on Earth and you my friend

End this Year with Peace and Prosperity and Fun
Promise Our Lord Jesus that you will become active
In the Community and in your personal Hygienic Health
We like your resolution to be more fruitarian & vegetarian

Hélène God’s Celestial Hosts are cheering you all the way
Our Lord Jesus Christ has a Plan for you to manifest
Wait in anticipation for this invitation to come to you
That will bring you into a World of true Heroism

You know that it has nothing to do with Ego/Pride & Vanity
As you believe wholeheartedly in Humility/Simplicity & Integrity
Now the time has come to let things happen as they will
Not requiring any hindrances from anyone nor you my dear

Your Joie de Vivre soon will be restored old friend and buddy
Your beliefs also will submerge and bring you into new heights
Trudy yes Beamish sends you her love and encouragement
Believing in your innocence and tolerance of ill wills of others

In Heaven Hélène we’re all there family and friends galore
Observing and praying profusely for the world’s state of affairs
Continue to read the bible saying your daily prayers soulfully
Never lose Faith and believe that God is always there for you

A Portfolio is being prepared for you where your voice enlivens
God’s population on Earth from a distance for nearly 30 years to date
Yes you’re reviewed under a Satellite mindfully and that is good
Do not lose hope for Peace on Earth and Goodwill to all man

I bid you fairwell for now dear friend and remember forever
That Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour is forthcoming
His promises are recorded and must be read diligently
Though you no longer have memories of your readings

His Holy Spirit will give you the words when it becomes necessary
Fear not Hélène! Be obedient without complaining or arguing
Time is short on earth and you know that we are Everlasting
And so continue to go into your Prayerful Resting Place

Goodnight Hélène. Be vigilant. Take courage. Be brave.
You have not been forgotten and as a matter of fact
As you know you rest in the palm of our Lord’s hands
Be diligent. Rest and Forgive and Forget injustices

With God entering Heaven Hélène you will say:
“I too am Enlightened! Hallelujah and Amen!”

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!

175. When Love Sometimes © Hélène Levasseur

Robert & Helene

Sometimes love is not emotionally received
Perhaps love is not given nor is it expected
When love is seen somewhat otherwise
When love becomes an exterior visible gift
Through sharing and working wholeheartedly
Then you encounter intuitively a master – God
Of kindness, nurturing in a new manner
And thank Him for such His great manoeuvre
And pray incessantly to respond so lovingly!

174. Just Pondering © Hélène Levasseur

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!

166. Frostyette and Frostytot’s Christmas Invitation © Hélène Levasseur


T’is twelve days before Christmas
Mrs. Frostyette and her little Frostytot
Were busy shopping for Christmas treats
They were all dressed up and filled with glee
Knowing that it was time to buy for the needy

They were pleased to go to the Food Bank
After having acquired a Grocery Certificate for a family
To have a Christmas Dinner that they would cherish
Where in this package was a Grace prayer of thanks
Praising and Glorifying Jesus Christ for his gifts

Frostyette and her Frostytot went to their Ice Chapel
Reciting “Peace be on Earth and Goodwill to all Man”
And thank you Lord Jesus for this Festive Season
Where we collectively bring joy and happiness
In our Community & Family celebrating your birthday

Happy Birthday Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Saviour!
Mrs. Frostyette and Little Frostytot invites us all
To find a family in our vicinity to give some groceries
A few gifts if they have little tots of their own
Imagine bringing them the true sense of Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone!

160. Not Bad for a T.B.I. © Hélène Levasseur

Photo on 14-04-04 at 2.05 PM

Twenty seven years have gone like bye-byes
Having left me with a few following my demise
But without so many wailing cries
I venture out with vim that thus fortifies

Was labelled severely brain injured
My intelligence somewhat hampered
Focus & concentration was tampered
Leaving traces of being brain severed

Many semesters were in my recovery
The first one was labelled “A Tragedy”
“Trauma” was the second and very weary
Lo and behold “Triumph” has come finally

In this third decade I almost felt forbidden
The doctors did say I would remain hidden
Everything I learned was very heavy laden
What can I say when I was so crestfallen

After many years I’m only now re-integrating
Time is here to come out of any rehabilitating
And slowly enter the world when dismantling
Engrained fears obtained by simply doing nothing

At the Act Theatre I get rid of any kind of ill-will
Delving into becoming public moving forth uphill
I could leave a message that shrills people’s thrill
The audience watches one with this outstanding pill

Well of course the Pill is “Poetry!”

Poetry makes me want to believe that it’s easy to live
Surviving a Brain Injury and two Cancers so progressive
I, Hélène Levasseur, is without a doubt no captive
In remission I am forgiving as I choose to be somewhat active

The Holy Wow Poets in Maple Ridge of which I am the Founder
Organizing it for several years has been quite an adventure
Some self-published some not paint a fine delightful literary picture
Of neatly performing recitals at Poetry Clubs with lots of vigour

A visit to Poetry Bashes at Performance Works on Granville Market
Gave me a will to free poets as they bring forth their ingenious wit
Whether in outstanding prose & rhyme poetry so devoutly fit
For odd audiences showing the Lower Mainland’s Grand Spirit

Once Teacher, Secretary and Trade & Consumer Show Manager
Enabled me to go through what was destroyed only to encounter
New skills, talents and treasures encompassing that of a “Rhymester”
Seeing & Saying the sky’s never the limit for one who is a “Star Gazer”

Things will surely pass as a Tragedy is proven to be only momentary
In a coma for three weeks one becomes they say “Quite Contrary”
“Out of Balance” our “Equilibrium remains deranged or fragmentary”
It’s not our fault as everyhting we say is purposely involuntary

2017 is now here and it is my Year to have a “Benevolent Career”
Doing Poetry Shows at the Act Theatre with “Hooplah and Cheer”
Inviting the Fraser Valley folks to embark on as a “Volunteer”
Published or not poets joining to simply becoming a “Pioneer”

Holy Wow Poets invite you! So on your mark. Get set and Go!
Read “Poetry for Dummies” and compose a poem so profoundo
Show us that there is nothing that you can not undergo
Become a reknown poet in our midst producing el Manifesto

I, Hélène Levasseur, think that I’m onto “Something of Glory”
A miracle from a production re. “An International Documentary”
From “Mental Damage to Homage” so we can make this honourary
Realizing that we were all meant for quite a “Coup of Publicity!”

I’ve been waiting for “God’s pious Hooting and Cheering!”
For those who are experiencing “Suffering and Lamenting”
Time has come to embark a few of us who are still self-denying
But deeply yearning “Poetic Potential” though still hibernating

Why not embark on the greatest “Prolific Adventure”
Where a documentary endears a quest for any “Survivor”
Taking people out of their “Shell and Burrowing Shelter”
And immersing them into a “Poetry World of Wonder”

What shall we name those survivors so magnified
The new chapters in their lives are certainly gratified
Performing we all become “Seasoned and Quite Dignified”
It appears that we’re onto something “Grandly Sanctified”

We’re Holy Wow Poets as we say with quite a wide smile
Discussing matters over a cup of tea of tasty Camomile
Finaly we’re coming out of having been in a “Long Exile”
My goodness we’re here taking “A Quantum Leap Mile”

Folks do you think we have found in our midst a “Goldmine”
The “Documented Holy Route” will seem like “A Serpentine
Not to worry let’s just ponder drinking some “Port Wine”
 “No Monkeyshine!” Let’s all stand tall like “Lordly Pine!”

Reciting at the Royal City Literary Arts Society is always a pleasure
What an honour being a “Special Holy Wow Poet Feature”
Invited by the Poets who bring me forth as a new figure
For the enjoyment of unknowns without pressure

Perhaps I also called Marie Noelle Hélène will leave a “Fragrance”
Choosing a “Bitter-Sweet-Bright-Biographic Nature” with “Poetic Elegance”
Beginning a “Friendship Club” bringing some “Reconaissance”
To souls for their “Sweetheart Stage Personal Performance”

I’ve reached this “Beginning Moment” in my poetry composing
But am somewhat left with a yearning for more exposing
Did you know that I believe that I was meant for “Entertaining”
It’s been a part of me since I was just “A Teen simply Flirting”

Oh Dear I must realize that the time has come for “Fruition”
In “Baby Stages” of “Studying Poetry” we need much “Affection”
“A Rhymester” shows up and the audience never “Falls into Oblivion”
But must be careful of not scaring them through my “Poetic Passion”

Whilst reciting a number came to my mind and and I was “Smitten”
Ten minutes has gone by now and I certainly don’t want to be a Burden
Remember what the doctors had said I now prove them “Ill-Gotten”
“Alive and Well Full of Fun and Laughter – “I’m out of “Kindergarden”

So on that note let me inform you that I am full of “Excitement”
Every day that goes by I will remember this grateful “Achievement”
The Holy Wow Poets helps people reach an “Era of Encouragement”
So I leave you today with some poetry that is “Not of Bereavement”

I promise to study poetry and rehearse all of it “Godspeed!”
One of my favourite poems is our lovely “Aspostle’s Creed”
I promise to write wholeheartedly without any doubt or greed
Never forgetting the listeners while I wear some “Fancy Tweed”

I’m not into pleasing “Affluent People” but all who have an ear
It certainly appears that the time has come for me to reappear
Thank you for being “My Applauders” like I was “Shakespeare”
I leave you now and embark on my “Study of  Edward Lear!”

143. Lorre Gibson is Simply Charmin’ © Hélène Levassseur

Lorre Gibson

Lorre Gibson is of a musical origin
She is known to be a friend quite befittin’
People know she does a lot of drummin’
Trusting God bringing her lots of singin’

She roams the land like a Wonder Merlin’
And treasures her little ones like shepherdin’
Many say that she is people’s safety pin’
As she answers wishes like Mary Poppins

Lorre Gibson heals ailments from within
There’s nothing that she leaves prevailin’
Acting like family though she’s not a cousin
It’s her way of showin’ her love a-throbbin’

Jesus loves when she lives like she’s a Capuchin
And when we speak she does no interruptin’
It’s o.k. to tell it like it is with much feelin’
As it’s safe exposin’ to her without any chagrin’

Lorre Gibson to many is like a Kremlin
Governing the weaklings from nothin’
In need of repair to be built into somethin’
Once disciplined they are thorough-goin’

Lorre Gibson Hélène enjoyed employin’
She’s a great listener and without a break-in
Of her character or personality she just fits in
In ways without botherin’ or highfalutin’

Lorre Gibson’s Poems are worth listenin’
Under the Satellite “Discover Yourself in’
Whatever she thinks, says or does grinnin’
Or actin’ as God’s sayin’:

“She’s Simply Charmin’!”
